The Center for Service-Learning and Civic Engagement promotes active learning and outreach, focused on civic engagement, in which students serve with non-profit organizations, health and human service agencies, and educational, governmental and other publicly funded institutions to help meet needs and/or address issues that have been identified by the communities in which the students are involved. Structurally, service-learning and civic engagement at MSU support curricular and co-curricular service-learning, interdisciplinary and cross-unit collaborations related to service, and service-learning in pre-college programs.
