Almost all student community engagement activities could be considered “service learning,” however, UMF and the Partnership use this term to refer only to student service activities that occur as an integral part of a regular academic course.  Service learning activities are normally initiated by faculty members who often work in collaboration with a community sponsor to design activities that both serve the community and lead to specific learning outcomes for students.  Students receive academic credit for this work but there is no financial compensation.
