The Community-Based Learning Progam assists faculty with locating community-based organizations that are interested in service-learning partnerships. Faculty may arrange a consultation about linking to community partners by contacting the director of the Community-Based Learning Program.
At the University of Iowa, service learning is defined as "... a way of teaching and learning that incorporates community engagement into academic coursework. Guided reflection links community-based student experience to course learning goals and objectives. Service-learning experiences respond to real community needs and enhance students’ civic responsibility."
