Service Learning

More than 1,000 of the Collegeís students participate each semester in service-learning activities that bring them into direct contact with patients, clients and consumers. These experiences provide students with real-world opportunities to hone their professional skills and to expand their education while allowing them to experience the satisfaction of improving the world in which we live. Many of our courses provide service -learning activities but such opportunities also exist through our research, clinical, and service units as well as a host of University and student organizations.

One such University organization, The Center for Student Engagement , was founded in 1994 through a partnership between Penn State and AT&T to provide service learning and leadership opportunities for Penn State students. To learn more and to become involved, visit the Center for Student Engagement.

For information about service learning opportunities in the College of Health and Human Development contact our Student Services Center as well as any of our schools and departments.
