Service learning is a type of experiential learning, a form of education that has become increasingly important at the college level as student bodies have changed. The authors present a review of their experiences with a course in which the content is a service learning project. The students carry out a project that enables them to hone their research skills and develop an appreciation of the political, economic, and social complexity of their community while at the same time providing a valuable service to that community.
