Students tutor/mentor, work with youth in center based programs, serve as companions to persons with disabilities or elders, assist teachers with at-risk students, help at preschools or after school programs, etc.
Students studying in other disciplines here at UNK are also involved in various service-learning and community engagement activities, dependent on the faculty and specific courses of study. Service-learning is linked to course curriculum to enhance student learning, while serving to meet a community identified need.
