Service-learning courses can make positive improvements in student learning and retention, but only if they are intentionally designed and developed. The first-year student experience can and should include service-learning opportunities and, when planning programs, it's important to keep developmental stages in mind.

Join Academic Impressions to learn why including service learning as a part of your first-year student experience is supported by persistence data, and how to intentionally develop programs based on the first-year student's developmental stage.


First-year student experience coordinators, service-learning professionals, and faculty who are interested in implementing service-learning courses for first-year students will learn how to create courses, provide meaningful assignments, and choose service sites appropriate for first-year students.
