Service Learning Opportunities

Girl by Tree

A variety of NMSU Carlsbad courses may include Service Learning options. Service learning programs involve students in activities that address local needs while developing their academic skills and commitment to their community. Service Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that connects meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility and strengthen communities. Participants in Service Learning master important curriculum content by making connections between what they are studying in the NMSU classroom and its many applications. The four pillars of Service Learning are

  • the academic focus in the NMSU classroom,
  • the service that meets a community need,
  • reflecting on the experience, and
  • strengthened civic responsibility.
