Welcome to the Learn & Serve America Higher Education STEM grantee learning community.
The purpose of the Corporation for National and Community Service Learn and Serve America Higher Education program is to support institutions of higher education that use innovative service-learning programming to meet the needs of local communities.
For the 2010 Learn and Serve America Higher Education grant competition, the Corporation identified two key funding priorities. One of those priorities was service-learning in STEM-focused disciplines. The grantees in this learning community are engaged in projects that support the integration of high-quality service-learning into STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) as a strategy to provide real-world context for classroom content.
This site will follow their work and share insights gained from the implementation of their projects that will benefit others interested in enhancing STEM courses through service-learning. For more details on grantees’ efforts, click on the “Projects” link above.
