Students have a number of both local and global options for learning about issues in our communities and our world, experiencing them firsthand, and actively working to resolve them.
In each course, students spend time engaged in academic learning to understand the history and context of particular cultures, societies and issues they face. Following this academic preparation, they begin experiential learning and work. Whether travelling and volunteering abroad, taking regular local field trips to work with members of our own community, or designing and implementing independent projects related to course content, students learn through experience and inquiry.
The following service courses are offered during the 2022-2023 academic year:
