Service Learning


The Office of Service Learning, located in Bobet 113, supports the development and implementation of service learning and community-based learning experiences in academic courses and programs of study at Loyola University New Orleans.  Our goal is to bring education to life by connecting classroom education to community needs.  In this way, we enact Loyola's Jesuit mission of helping young people become men and women for others.  

Courses with service learning components are noted in LORA.  Your professor will decide whether service learning will be optional or required.  Students should take note of service learning requirements when registering for classes.  Typically, service learning is considered part of the workload for a course.  Service learning students frequently devote some out-of-class time to working with local nonprofit organizations to benefit the greater New Orleans community.  Students who successfully complete a service learning project or placement for a class will receive a notation on their Loyola transcript.
