Experiential Learning with a Social Justice Emphasis
Aligned with Fordham’s mission as a Jesuit university, Service-Learning aims to form students in a ‘well- educated solidarity’ (Jesuit Conference 2002). At the core of this work is our students development in mind, body and spirit in the areas of self and society. Our community partners are partners in our students’ education at Fordham.
Community organizations can become partners in the Service-Learning Program in one of two ways:
-all students enrolled in an integrated course are involved in service in the community. Community partners develop relationships with faculty and together create partnerships rooted in the learning objectives of the course and the mission of the organization.
Interdisciplinary Seminar- students pair one of their academic courses to volunteering with a community organization. Students will contact community partners during the first three weeks of the semester to initiate the relationship and come to an agreement upon service days and hours.
