The 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.

Note: Students who do not have reflection sessions hosted in their classes, and cannot make the above dates should contact the Office of Service-Learning to schedule individual Reflection Sessions. These sessions will be by appointment only. Please check your syllabus for the "Reflection" portion of your couse.
