As sustainability is a topic that is constantly sprouting up in all facets of the
modern day professional world, it is increasingly important to develop a
detailed understanding of the relationship between sustainable practices
and the ever-growing harvest of post-graduation opportunities.
Service-Learning strengthens the relationship between experiential and
classroom-based learning by providing students with an opportunity to
engage in meaningful service projects that meet community needs and
that are directly related to their academic curriculum. Sustainable
service-learning projects provide MCC students with vast opportunities
for civic engagement through organized service partnerships that endorse
and promote sustainability in the community. The projects act as strong
resources for sustainable information and job-related experience, and
also provide meaningful support to ‘green’ community organizations by
fulfilling needs that directly fertilize their short- or long-term sustainable
goals. Sustainable service-learning is a fun and rigorous way to further
develop an understanding of sustainability, civic engagement, and their
relationship to the professional world.
