                           Service-Learning
"Service-learning is a form of experiential education
  where learning occurs through a cycle of action and
  reflection as students work with others through a
  process of applying what they are learning to
  community problems and, at the same time,
  reflecting upon their experience as they seek to
  achieve real objectives for the community and
  deeper understanding and skills for themselves." *

    Bass. As taken from the National Commission on Service Learning.
           Service-Learning at Creighton
                University
Service-learning at Creighton University may
  take two forms: academic service-learning and
  co-curricular service-learning.

                            University
"Service is an essential part of a Creighton education.
  Our mission, our calling, is to prepare women and
  men who are not only leaders in their careers and
  professions, but who are of service to the world
  society.... Service, of course, is not an insular
  activity. In reaching out, I am grateful to the many
  agencies, near and far, that partner with us and
  allow our students opportunities for growth and
  formation."
(From "Message from the University President, John P. Schlegel, S.J.," Creighton University
    Magazine, Winter 2006)
