Service Learning

The Feinstein Center for Service Learning recognizes the following courses as having a service learning component. Service learning is an alternative way of both teaching and learning about concepts or theories. All first-year students are introduced to service learning through their required URI 101, Traditions and Transformation course. The purpose of these courses is to help students make meaningful connections between academic course work and societal issues and needs within the community. The service work is profoundly connected to and enhanced by the specific course of study. Depending on the instructor, the service learning component may be an optional or required part of the course content.
