Service Learning at UNO

The University of Nebraska at Omaha is committed to building bridges between the campus and the community. Service learning is one of those bridges and is a method of teaching that connects academic coursework to community needs.

The Service Learning Academy works in collaboration with nonprofit community organizations, governmental agencies, and P-12 faculty. Projects are implemented that serve the community and create valuable learning experiences for UNO students. Students’ learning goes beyond the classroom as they apply their knowledge to real-life situations in the community. Reflection activities before, during, and after each project facilitate critical thinking and problem solving skills.
Service learning is a critical aspect in the academic and personnel development of UNO students.

The integration of academic knowledge with a service learning experience prepares students to work and serve in an increasingly diverse and challenging environment. This makes students more desirable for future employment and increases their sense of civic engagement.


Service learning has benefits for each participatory group: community, faculty and P-16 educators, and students.
