Service-learning at Butler Community College exists to engage students in learning through meaningful service and reflection, while addressing genuine community needs.

What is service-learning?
Service-Learning at Butler Community College is an academic and co-curricular tool to engage students in learning through meaningful service on and off campus. By reflecting on service that addresses genuine community needs, students meet course learning outcomes or stated activity or Learning PACT goals, become civically engaged, and move purposefully toward becoming responsible, involved, life-long learners who contribute to the vitality of their communities.

"Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself. "
