Programs and Courses

Faculty across disciplines recognize that learning deepens through hands-on activities, interaction with community members, and applying classroom learning to meet the needs of others. During the 2017-18 academic year, 65 APU faculty employed academic service-learning in 185 courses/course sections across 24 departments throughout the university, resulting in more than 46,000 hours of service to and engagement with the local community.

Academic service-learning at APU empowers students with a commitment to high-quality service opportunities directly tied to scholarship, thus advancing the objective of postgraduation employability.
