Service-learning courses at Cornell are offered from various colleges and disciplines to engage students, faculty, and community partners on issues relating to poverty, literacy, education, access, health care, immigration, hunger, affordable housing, environment, and others. Service-learning courses are academically rigorous and offer students opportunities to link theory and practice through structured public service activities in collaboration with local communities, and thus gain further understanding and appreciation of the discipline, while achieving an enhanced sense of civic responsibility.
Through Service-learning, students gain hands-on problem-solving skills, develop an aptitude for critical thinking, and become active citizens in our democratic society. The Cornell Public Service Center (PSC) serves as the hub of public service and civic engagement activities on campus.
For students and faculty members who are interested or engaged in public service, public scholarship, and civic engagement, the Public Service Center has developed a comprehensive list of Service-learning courses on campus. For more information, please visit www.psc.cornell.edu.
