Service Learning

In the words of the National Service Learning Clearinghouse, Service Learning is “a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities”

At the Blackfriary we welcome students who wish to engage with our community projects, and particularly welcome Faculty led programs. In 2016 we hosted a group from the Indiana State University who assisted with the ground work and planting of our Community garden, amongst other projects, under the direction of Dr Nancy Rogers, Vice President for University Engagement and Dr Linda Maule, Dean of the University College, Indiana State University.
