Community-Based Engaged Learning
Gain firsthand experience with the community and real-world needs through community-based engaged learning, also known as service-learning. Service-learning courses provide students with a broader and deeper understanding of their area of study, foster their sense of civic engagement, and enhance their perception of themselves and their role in the community. This form of engaged learning improves students' interpersonal and organizational skills which can also help them with future career decisions.
IU provides a variety of service-learning courses that allow you to combine an academic approach with real-life experiences.
