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.
