Community service can benefit your students as well as your community, your department, and the university by fueling service learning opportunities and internships in the curriculum, modeling for students the application of knowledge to meet real-world needs, and expanding networking and mentoring opportunities available to students.

Community service can also inform your scholarship, particularly scholarship of engagement, which connects scholarship to the understanding and solving of pressing social, civic, and ethical problems.
