Reflection Sessions

Reflection Sessions are to serve as a bridge between the service project and the course material. Without this important connection, the learning goals of service-learning are not successfully accomplished. The service completed in the community and the materials learned in the classroom play equally important roles to a student's development.

  • Service-Learning student must have a REFLECTION component to their course.  Some professors will have written journals, some will host in-class reflections and some will required outside-the-classroom reflections (see schedule below)
  • If you attend an "outside-the-classroom" reflection, please do not attend consecutive sessions.  Students should try to attend one in the beginning, the middle, and one at the end of the project.  
  • If students are to attend more than ONE (1) Reflection Session a semester, the first session MUST BE COMPLETED BY OCTOBER (for Fall Semester) or MARCH (for Spring Semester). 
  • Students are to sign up for reflection sessions prior to arrival to ensure their place in the session.  Dates and times for Reflection Sessions are available below.
