The Mission of Tulsa Community College challenges our students, faculty and staff to help make our community a better place by our “engagement in teaching, learning, and service opportunities that transform and enrich lives.” Nowhere is this Mission better fulfilled than in those classes where students have a chance to experience academic-based service-learning.

  • Participating in service activities connected to specific learning outcomes
  • Participation in service activities that meet identified community needs
  • Structured time for student reflection and connection of the service experience to learning
