Welcome to the Rural Alliance for Service Learning
The natural environment, unique occupations, space, low-density population, and a strong sense of place help define rural communities. Rural life is an important component of our natural heritage.
The mission of the Rural Alliance for Service Learning is to encourage, enhance, and study the role of service learning in building healthier and more vibrant rural communities. In conjunction with community partners, service learning practitioners will strive to build upon the positive attributes of the rural culture while mitigating the negative factors. Rural Service Learning can involve studies, service, co-operative programs and projects, and policy development. In the process, students will develop their potential as future engaged citizens.
