More than just an opportunity to give back to the community, service-learning is a
class assignment that helps students think in a different way about the course content
while cultivating a sense of civic responsibility. Several courses which use a service-learning experience are the junior-level general
education course Issues in Modern America, Introduction to Social Work and several of the honors courses.
In the past, students have worked at Allen County Health Partners, Big Brothers Big
Sisters, City Mission of Findlay, Elm Street Church of the Brethren, Maple Crest Senior
Living Village, Mennonite Memorial Home, Rally Point Youth Center in Lima and the
W.O.R.T.H. Center, in addition to other various locations.
At Bluffton, you'll also have the opportunity to volunteer in the community through
Bluffton's student service organization SERVE.
