Mission Statement

Service-learning combines academic study, work in and with the community, and intentional reflection on the experience. The essential question posed by the Bunting Center is: How do we develop the best combination of knowledge, skills, and values that will make a positive difference in our communities?

The Bunting Center for provides opportunities for the campus community to:

  • engage in the community beyond the gate
  • recognize and challenge assumptions
  • practice interacting across cultures
  • reconsider ways of knowing and sources of knowledge
  • understand and practice civic involvement
  • channel personal and academic interests to address community-identified needs
  • act to recognize and correct injustice
  • prepare for lives of active citizenship
