Promoting Active Learning
and Service

Smiling Students


Promoting Active Learning and Service program (P.A.L.S) was established in 2012 to meet the diverse needs of our students, strengthen ties to the community, and to offer faculty and staff with more leadership opportunities. PALS operates under the Division of Student Learning.

What Is Service Learning?

A teaching and learning strategy that integrates community service with instruction to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities.

Mission Statement

The PALS program enhances the traditional teaching and learning process by partnering students, instructors, and staff with the mission of being civically engaged and contributing positively to the growth of their community. We achieve this by providing mentorship and access to service-learning opportunities.
