Service-Learning Resources

APU Faculty and Community Partner Resources

The pedagogy of academic service-learning combines student learning outcomes with relevant service that meets a community need. To guide and support the implementation of effective, meaningful, and reciprocal community engagement through academic coursework, the following resources have been developed for our faculty and community partners.

Year-End Reports

Academic Service-Learning commits to APU’s Academic Vision through rigorous and cumulative service-learning course assessment and evaluation. Quantitative and qualitative data collected from service-learning student evaluations at the conclusion of each semester provide evidence of transformational scholarship. The service-learning experience, linking theory and pedagogy with course-relevant community service, contributes to student learning outcomes and frequently leads to an increased understanding of God-honoring diversity, faith integration, and in some courses, international internationalization. Data reports are made available to individual course professors, departments, schools, and the Office of Institutional Research and Assessment.
