Reflection is an integral part of Service Learning and attendance for at least one session is HIGHLY encouraged.

Many professors have made attendance mandatory for their classes. You are welcome to attend as many sessions as you would like. Mark your calendars now and be sure to save the date for the topic(s) that spark your interest. These reflections are specifically geared towards service learning experiences.

Attendance will be taken at each reflection session in order to inform professors of your participation.

*If you arrive more than 15 minutes late or leave more than 15 minutes early for any reason your attendance will not be counted.*

We hope to see you there!

Please RSVP for reflection sessions that you plan to attend at:

Service Learning 1001

September 23rd, 5:30-7:00pm, AMU 227

This session is strongly encouraged for those who have never participated in Service Learning.

Service Learning is a unique academic assignment that asks you to confront your own values and vulnerabilities, to recognize social inequalities, and to identify with the harshness of marginalization.  Instead of solely reading about theories and concepts in class, you will be asked to test, feel, and observe those concepts in real life.  This experience will take you out of your comfort zone and cause you to learn more about your society and yourself.  Before beginning service, it is important to explore your emotions, reservations, initial impressions, prejudices, and goals.  During this session, you will discover where your thoughts and values are as you begin the Service Learning experience, which will help you better prepare to learn and grow throughout the semester.

*After the reflection session there will be an additional workshop concerning Milwaukee public transportation from 8:00-8:30pm.  We strongly encourage students who have never used the Milwaukee public transit bus system to attend this workshop.
