Students and Educators
Every semester, there are a variety of courses at UNO that incorporate service learning. Students are given the opportunity to apply classroom curriculum to actual community needs through hands on projects. Service learning classes give students the opportunity to learn about the surrounding community and the organizations who service our community. Students who take service learning courses walk away with new skillsets and better course knowledge.
Service learning is offered through a variety of UNO classes and across a variety of the course-subject spectrum. Some service learning classes are traditional projects, which is when a UNO class works with a community organization, and others are part of the P-16 initiative, which also adds in metro area schools as partners. To learn more about the benefits of service learning and how to become involved, visit our Information for Students page.
UNO faculty members and Omaha metro area P-16 educators develop partnerships with local community organizations (non-profits), small businesses, government entities, and social entrepreneurs, to collaborate and create projects and service activities. These collaborations and projects give UNO students relevancy and application to their courses, while they also support community needs.
The Service Learning Academy provides various resources for the development and implementation of quality service learning. To learn more about how we can support your project, view our Information for Educators page.
In addition to creating engaging learning environments, service learning also leads to new avenues for research and publication. For students and educators interested in research opportunities, please view the following pages.Conference Opportunities
