The LeMoyne-Owen College Service Learning Program provides structured community based educational opportunities for students to develop their sense of social responsibility and their potential for civic leadership by combining action with reflection. Students engage in direct structured and meaningful activities benefiting the community; and; intellectually examine that experience and place it in an academic perspective through readings, discussions and writings.
The program also provides support for faculty, through workshops and serves as a resource center for various syllabi, reading materials and assessment tools. The program functions as a conductor for the creation of internships and other experiential learning opportunities that engage learning with service activities.
The values that students learn from the Service Learning experiences can help them develop the social and personal skills that will help in their roles as productive members of society.
