Service-learning facilitates an exchange of ideas, learning, and hands-on experience to mutually benefit our students, our campus, and our community.

Cleveland State Community College is committed to providing its students with opportunities for experiential learning through community service activities during their collegiate experience. A number of courses at the college incorporate service-learning activities, providing students with opportunity to connect what they are learning in the classroom with service in the community. In addition, the college has introduced new service-learning courses that students may select to take for elective credit.

Service opportunities are structured to help students acquire a sense of civic and social responsibility, learn about their community, apply classroom learning, expand their skills, and reflect on their experiences. At the same time, the college hopes that the service of student volunteers will assist with many needs in our community.
