Office of Service Learning

"If today's college graduates are to become positive forces in this world, they need not only to possess knowledge and intellectual capacities but also to see themselves as members of a community, as individuals with a responsibility to contribute to their communities. They must be willing to act for the common good and capable of doing so effectively."

From Educating Citizens, Preparing America's Undergraduates for Lives of Moral and Civic Responsibility by Colby, Elrich, Beaumont and Stephens

Here at the Office of Service Learning we work to provide you with academic and co-curricular opportunities that connect you to the local community and the world through service. We aim to deepen and enhance your educational experience at Murray State University by helping you understand how you can contribute and make a real difference in the lives of others.
