For the second year in a row the Service-Learning Program is excited to put together a compilation of highlights and

accomplishments within the colleges and partnering academic programs, which can be seen in the following pages.

Each page displays their Service-Learning (S-L) courses, their Service-Learning Student Leaders (S-LSLs), and the

community partners they’ve worked with throughout the year.

What is Service-Learning?

Service-Learning (S-L) is a form of experiential learning for students and a teaching tool for faculty that purposefully

integrates academics and service or community-engaged projects to meet classroom and community goals throughout

the semester. As part of their coursework, students partner with community-based organizations, non-profit

organizations, and government agencies as a way to learn the course material. In addition to service-learning courses,

the Service-Learning Program supports research related to service-learning and community engagement, as well as

publicly-engaged scholarship in partnership with the community.

Service-Learning Program Accomplishments





Service-Learning (S-L) launched a new digital platform, the Service-Learning ​Virtual EXPO​. Here we

house Digital Artifacts that showcase the collaborations happening between faculty members,

community partners, S-L students, and S-L student leaders each semester.

Service-Learning hosted their first two-day ​Publicly Engaged Scholar-in-Residence Event​, featuring Dr.

Timothy K. Eatman.

Four faculty members completed the ​Service-Learning Fellows Program​, which we facilitate in

partnership with CATLR​.

Northeastern ranked as a ​US News and World Report top school for Service-Learning​ ​for the 9th year in

a row.

Testimonials

“The course concepts of adversity, advocacy, communication, backgrounds and cultures, disability and others all related

to my service. I learned many concepts that I witnessed in the field. I learned skills to deal with different aspects of

healthcare that I could bring back to the classroom when we discussed these topics. For example, I observed and

engaged in the Carter School staff's advocacy for their students. I was able to bring this knowledge to the classroom

topic of advocacy and its importance.” - ​Bouvé​ Service-Learning student

“I had yet to have worked in a physical therapy setting revolving around a school. It was interesting to see how PT can

prove to be an integral role in the students' daily lives, and how an integrative and collaborative team is necessary in

providing the most optimal care for students.” -​Bouvé​ Service-Learning student

Testimonials

“This experience taught me so many things you cannot learn in a classroom. I learned how to communicate with

students, answer questions sufficiently, provide support to students, as well as enhance my communication skills. I think

it has also made me realize how important community service is to me and has altered my plans for the rest of my

college and professional career.” - COS Student

“This service learning helped me to realize all of the options you have as a science major as well as keep in mind how

exciting science can be. It’s easy to get caught up in the lessons but this taught me to really appreciate how cool the

topics can be.” - COS Student

“All of the Biology Class were extremely prepared and always brought the energy.” - COS Community Partner

“My S-LTA is absolutely the most important and essential - not just having a TA, but having someone who has the

ongoing training, mentoring, and support of the program. I also find the pre-semester partnership networking very

valuable and really appreciate the RFP process and the matchmaking that goes with it.” - COS Faculty Member

Testimonials

“Through service-learning, I actually learned how to apply the concepts needed to build a helping relationship which we

learned in class, such as the attitudes and values (empathy, patience, self-awareness, and open-mindedness), skills

(intercultural competence, forming action plans) and knowledge (dynamics of Boston public schools, force of inequality

this system)” - CPS Faculty Member

Service learning has helped me develop new skills but also helped me improve skills that I already had. Working with

kids has helped me grow as a person.” -CPS student

“It made me realize that I love working in a classroom setting and want to pursue education. I also learned about

working with the Latinx community and improved my Spanish along the way. I also formed meaningful relationships

with some of the students and learned about their backgrounds and how they may affect them.” -CPS student

“I was extremely impressed by the students. Though I think they both felt initially a little overwhelmed, they kept open

minds and extended themselves to build relationships with our students. They got to know classrooms very quickly. For

13


our students, meeting people just a little older than them who are in college is really meaningful and takes some of the

mystery and distance out of that world.” - CPS Community Partner

Testimonials

“I am grateful for the opportunity to teach S-L courses as a way to help my students and I develop and strengthen a

social consciousness and commitment to creating meaningful writing as members of the NU and local communities. The

course is never the same twice, and every time we discover something new that none of us would have predicted at

the beginning of the semester. That consistent opportunity and challenge to do more and do differently fuels my

teaching and learning.” - CSSH Faculty Member

“This partnership allowed us to provide individualized support to students during their class so the students could

receive as much assistance with the crafting of their essays. Having a cohort of NEU students to support a visit really

allows a student to talk out their ideas and arguments and spend time brainstorming and formulating an

outline--something students really struggle with and often don't have patience for. Having a NEU student there to go

through that process with them really helps them enjoy it and think critically about what they are writing about

because they're having discussions and follow up questions and consistent interest from the NEU students.” - CSSH

Community Partner

“Through service-learning, I actually learned how to apply the concepts needed to build a helping relationship which we

learned in class, such as the attitudes and values (empathy, patience, self-awareness, and open-mindedness), skills

(intercultural competence, forming action plans) and knowledge (dynamics of Boston public schools, force of inequality

this system)” - CSSH Service-Learning student

“The interactions between Service Learners and the children in our program was outstanding. 95% of our children live in

households where the income is at or below poverty level, and they are often challenged by changing circumstances in

their lives. The connections that the Service Learning team made with our program youth gave them a feeling of being

important and connected to college students who served as role models and as kind, safe, adults our children could

trust.” - CSSH Community Partner

“My service learning experience has taught me the value of helping out a local community as Boston has provided so

much for me. By giving back and learning a few new things in the process, I feel as though incorporating more service

learning projects throughout the rest of my college career will only serve to benefit my character and my education.” -

Testimonials

“The Service-Learning experience has helped me understand some concepts we discussed in class better and helped me

see what I can do better in the future. It provided me with a great experience in consulting and showed me what I was

good in and what I can work on.” -D’Amore-McKim S-L student

“This course helps me to realize that marketing is more than advertising and promotion. It could influence society and

contribute to making a better society.” -D’Amore-McKim S-L student

“I was able to view my work, not just as a grade, but also as a value producing product that was to be presented to a

team expecting a plan. This made me approach my work differently than simply a presentation to the professor.”

Service Learning has shown me the importance of integrating yourself into the community and being involved, as well

as how much even a small action can impact people. It’s made me more willing to get involved in service, and I will

definitely look for more opportunities in the future.” - Honors S-L Student
