The Mission of SWOSU Serves

The mission of SWOSU Serves is to provide students with the opportunity to actively engage with the community in a service learning project. Service-learning is considered to be a high impact practice for students, because it contributes to the educational experience by promoting learning outside the walls of the classroom. This activity will encourage personal growth in students while also meeting various needs in the community. SWOSU Serves is an event designed to strengthen the relationship between SWOSU and surrounding organizations.
