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).
Placed with one of our community partners, students engage their academic work through the lens of their work in the community.
Students can get involved with Service Learning in one of two ways:
Integrated Courses-all students enrolled in the class are involved in service, and work in the community is employed as a learning resource alongside the traditional resources of text, lecture and discussion.
Interdisciplinary Seminar-students pair one of their academic courses to volunteering with a community organization.
