Service learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities. The UGA College of Public Health offers a growing list of service learning courses which connect our students to public service and allow them to engage in important public health issues in a scholarly way.
