At Delta College emphasis is put on meeting the community needs and learning through structured reflection activities, where both the student and community can learn together.
Delta College and the United Way Community Volunteer Centers of Bay, Midland, and Saginaw Counties work as partners to assist students in our Service-Learning Program. The Service-Learning Office encourages students, faculty and staff to donate their time and energy to non-profit agencies in the surrounding communities. The office provides information and referral services to all students interested in committing their time.
What is Academic Service-Learning?
Academic Service-Learning is a credit-bearing teaching-learning method that combines meaningful community service with critical, reflective thinking so that students gain greater understanding and application of course content and an enhanced sense of civic responsibility.
The Global Peace Studies Program (GPS) recently traveled to Guatemala with a team of faculty, staff, community members and students for a service learning experience. Click here to meet the team and view the students' video journals.
