Center for Service  

Service LearningOur Mission

We empower students to combine traditional coursework with community service and experiential learning. Your service helps others while enriching your academic experience, strengthening your professional development, and positioning you to be a leader on and off campus. Through our many service programs and initiatives, we provide students many opportunities to realize, understand, and develop their leadership competencies.

MCLA's commitment to civic engagement and community building is reflected in the over 90,000 hours that MCLA students devoted to community service and service learning during the last five academic years.
