Service Learning

Hilbert College's Office of Service Learning strives to promote service-learning by:

  • facilitating and sustaining meaningful partnerships between faculty, community agencies and students;
  • providing infrastructure, including placement opportunities and reference tools, for faculty to incorporate service-learning into their courses;
  • supporting faculty development and in-class learning initiatives.

 Service Spotlight


Students from Professor Jenelle Kostran Lukasik's MA 135 Mathematical Applications
present information on financial issues.

 "It is the practical exercises, the hands-on experiences, and the knowledge of physically performing the task in a ‘real world’ setting that will last a lifetime. Yes, learning in a classroom is vital, but [taking] what has been taught in the class, and using it in a practical manner soon after it is taught, to me completes the lesson." - Hilbert College Student in MA 135: Mathematical Applications, Community Partner: Hamburg Meals on Wheels

"Through the service work . . . performed at Mental Health Peer Connection, my desire to obtain my four-year degree in human services and then move forward toward a master's degree in counseling is no longer a dream, it is the opportunity that is waiting for me down the educational and vocational path of success. Service learning is a great opportunity to research career opportunities and personal growth." - Hilbert College Student in HS 101: Intro to Human Services, Community Partner: Peer Mental Health Connection
