Combining learning in the classroom
with service to the community.
Green Mountain College recognizes the importance of a strong relationship with the local community, and the value these interactions add to a liberal arts education. Students in every field of study contribute to service-learning efforts each year, in projects ranging from environmental research and restoration, to teaching elementary school kids about outdoor living skills.
The Office of Service-Learning assists in coordinating many of these projects and helps students and faculty find new ways to engage with community partners.
Service-learning is a teaching method that links course objectives with meaningful community service experiences. Students gain a greater understanding of practical real-world problems and how to create solutions utilizing the knowledge and skills acquired in the classroom.
Service-learning takes time and effort on the part of many community members. Below is a list of the resources that went into service-learning during the 2009-10 academic year.
