Descriptions: Is it possible to enrich one's intellectual, ethical, and interpersonal capacities, while engaging in socially valuable action? The concept of service learning says 'Yes'. This module affords students the opportunity to engage in socially valuable action while critically reflecting on the nature of their action and the problems it seeks to address. The goal is for students to develop a holistic awareness of the variety of problems (e.g. the environment, poverty, social discrimination) that call for action; how such problems can or should be addressed; and, the relationship between the specifics of these problems and larger social and ethical issues.
