Stephen F. Austin State University offers a way for students to interact and give back to the Nacogdoches community by providing service learning classes. These classes give students the opportunity to apply skills learned in the classroom to real life situations. Usually, the entire class works diligently all semester on a project with a focus on helping others. The Office of the Dean of Student Affairs, Office of Student Affairs Programs, Faculty, the Teaching Excellence Center and community partners all contribute to making service learning possible here at SFA. Service learning gives students the opportunity to gain experience in their field while attending SFA. The two main outcomes of service learning are active learning and civic engagement. Also, in service learning classes, faculty can apply for a $500 grant to help pay for class project expenses. These project expenses may include travel fees, supplies, printing and resource materials. Overall, service learning is just one more thing to add to the list of many benefits for students attending SFA.
