Welcome to UMKC Service-Learning, a campus-wide support program that connects campus and community. The program for service-learning connects the service needed by the community with the learning needs of students. Alumni, faculty, and staff are welcomed partners in both service and learning. It is important that UMKC faculty, students, alumni, and administrators engage with the communities and organizations that make Kansas City a great place to live, work, and learn. It is also important for Kansas City communities and organizations to know how to connect with students, alumni, and faculty time, talent, and expertise. UMKC Service-Learning supports these connections through Serve 2 Learn, an online project management resource for service-learning, community service, and internships.
