What is it?
Washington Adventist University dedicates one day a semester to service learning. It is a time when the campus community engages in volunteerism through local environmental, health, food, and human services organizations. Students are provided the opportunity to participate in projects directly related to their course of study or any particular cause that seems most meaningful to them. The day’s purpose is to build awareness and facilitate responsiveness to issues that align with the greater community needs and moral competent leadership.
