Academic service-learning at St. John’s University is a classroom/ experiential site-based program that involves students in some form of required community service that benefits the common (public) good and uses service as a means of understanding course concepts. The service activity meets course objectives, and through reflection, students examine issues pertaining to social justice and responsibility.
“I loved participating. I am truly changed for the better after my service learning. I now want to give back and do more. It is a feeling I have never felt before and something I plan on doing more. I want to thank St. John’s for the life-changing opportunity.” First Year Student 2016-2017Academic Service Learning on the Staten Island Campus
