Service Learning provides the student and faculty member ways to be engaged in providing assistance, information, or a service that is linked to a particular course, program, or organization on campus. The identified service may even be provided on campus to groups of students.
Learning can occur in many different ways. Over the last several decades, experience and research have shown that performing service can provide valuable learning experiences.
The administration of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System believes that civic engagement is a critical part of any student’s education. Not only will students gain valuable skills through a practical application of the knowledge acquired from academia, but they will also develop an understanding of the world that cannot be
learned in any classroom.
All webinars will be facilitated on the second Friday of the month at 10:00 Eastern time.
On March 5th 2012 6 nursing students presented the Henderson’s Women’s Shelter with approximately $450.00 in items that they had identified they had a need. The Nursing 23/213 students organized this donation of “we Care” for the shelter and Sana Duncan served as the leader for the this Service Learning community activity. During Nursing 213, Pediatric Nursing, families and their different structures and needs were discussed. The students independently decided to meet the needs of the women and children being serviced by the local shelter by collecting and raising funds for the designated items.
Henderson Community College is a member of the Kentucky Campus Compact.
