The mission of the Service-Learning Program is to centralize resources and support for faculty, students, partner organizations and the diverse communities they serve in order to advance education and social justice through shared learning and collaborative action.

Service-Learning is an educational approach that integrates meaningful community engagement with academic curriculum emphasizing critical reflection and analysis. Through partnerships with community organizations and schools, students have the opportunity to learn about the lives of others and the larger contexts and root causes of issues that ultimately impact the well-being of all. Service-Learning embraces the principles of reciprocity between all parties — the community partners are co-educators, faculty and students are engaged citizens, and the academy becomes an active member of the local and global community.

Community Partners: Our Co-Educators! The list below represents the schools and organizations that we work with an ongoing basis to create partnerships that nurture respectful relationships and mutual benefits that lead to deep and meaningful learning experiences for Dominican students. Our partners are incredible! None of this could happen without their tireless generosity and willingness to guide and mentor Dominican students while, together, we continue to navigate, negotiate, and celebrate the complexity of our shared goals.
