Make a Difference in the Community, Meet New People and Build Your SkillsAt St. Norbert, we give you the chance to become a socially engaged citizen. Through volunteering and service-learning, the campus and the community come together in partnership to share resources and meet REAL community needs.
You're probably clear on what volunteering is, but what about service-learning? Service-learning is when you practice your skills and enhance your classroom knowledge through related community service experiences. Our professors use service opportunities in their classes to enrich learning, teach civic responsibility and strengthen communities.
