“The only reason to give a speech is to change the world.” –Nick Morgan, Author

Service learning is an experiential type learning that offers students the opportunity to apply their classroom education to the “real” world. The  SPCH 1311 for Health Sciences course includes a service learning project option. Additional professors who offer service learning components in their courses include: Theresa Glenn and Gretchen Harries.

Past Service Learning Experiences

During spring 2015 through the means of service learning, students enrolled in SPCH 1311 at the Northridge Campus, experienced academic learning by serving their community and by participating in the 2015 Austin Crop Walk.

ACC students changed the world by preparing public presentations on global issues such as world hunger focusing on Cambodia and the US, environmental issues in Serbia, literacy deficiencies, the effects of war on children and the HIV/AIDS crisis in Africa. Hear what students had to say about their experience.
