Service-learning is a key component of our school’s reaccreditation proposal. As pedagogy, it can reinforce any course’s adherence to Chaminade’s mission. Extensive research “proves” that well-implemented service-learning is highly effective in promoting student learning outcomes.
Incorporating Service-Learning into Your Course
Incorporating service-learning into your syllabi can be easy. The Service-Learning Office invited faculty to “get their feet wet” by experimenting with new integrations of service-learning in their classes.

The Chaminade Service-Learning Faculty Resource Handbook was disseminated at Faculty Retreat, when the Retreat focused on service-learning. It includes information about syllabus/course development, different types of service-learning, assessment rubrics, curricular links for all disciplines, reflection strategies, and information about using S-L as a vehicle for research and publication. Contact the Service-Learning Office if you would like to access the Chaminade Service-Learning Handbook.
Contact Candice Sakuda if you have any questions and/or concerns.
