The Service Learning program compliments student education by connecting course content to service-learning opportunities in the community. It is a credit-bearing educational experience in which students participate in an organized service activity that meets identified community needs while gaining deeper understanding of the course content, broader application of the discipline, and an enhanced sense of civic responsibility. Unlike extracurricular voluntary service, service learning is a course-based service experience that produces the best outcomes when meaningful service activities are related to course material.
In addition to academic based service, NCC also provides a wide range of service opportunities through its Center for Civic and Community Engagement (CCCE). Students, staff and faculty can access information, resources and support for any type of engagement activity they choose.
