What to expect from Community-Engaged Learning

A community-engaged partnership is generally characterized by the following:

  • Creighton students serve with partner organizations up to 40 hours over an approximate 10-15 week period in spring, summer or fall semesters.
  • Creighton students serve with a variety of nonprofit and/or public organizations, with a special emphasis on those organizations which embody a preferential option for the poor and vulnerable.
  • Student service can take several forms.
  • Student service must be connected to the academic content of the class.
  • Student service is aligned with the academic learning goals of the class in order to facilitate deeper, richer learning.
  • Academic service learning should advance student learning and your organization's priorities.
