What is “Service-Learning”?
Service-Learning combines the ideas of Service and Learning. The general concept of service is providing social service or being a volunteer. Going into the community to provide voluntary service and human empathy can help segments of this society. However, we also emphasize the important concept "Learning", which is the most difference from the traditional notion of voluntary service. In "Service-Learning" , we not only expect students to join in serving the community but also to learn for themselves and grow up.
Mission Statement of Service-Learning Section
With the trends of globalization and cultural diversity, students should cultivate abilities to accommodate others, deal with problems, and have civic ethics. Therefore, the Student Affairs Division formulated “LOVE MCU” (Learning Offering Virtue Enthusiasm Mind Catcher Ubiquity & Universe), expecting students can be nurtured to know, feel and carry out their social responsibility. The mission statement of Service-Learning Section not only follows the goal of LOVE MCU but also aims to build up professional, intelligent, and enthusiastic university community.
To achieve these purposes, our tasks are as follows:
1. Plan and conduct courses on Service-Learning for the departments.
2. Manage resources, including on-campus and off-campus.
3. Hold Service-Learning activities, such as competitions, workshops, extension courses, discussions…etc.
