Enhancing Scholarship and Advancing Community Relationships

Academic service-learning, an experientially-based teaching methodology combining classroom pedagogy with community action as an integral aspect of the course, builds community by developing positive, reciprocal relationships between APU and the local private and public sectors in order to enhance scholarship of both faculty and students through service activities. Students are offered a larger contextual perspective for the course materials they are studying, and those subjects become more dynamic and authentic because of the experiences and observations.
