Community & Service Learning

We are fortunate to have a number of opportunities to provide volunteer opportunities for students on and off campus as part of their need to “give back” to the community. In the words of the National Service Learning Clearinghouse, service learning is “a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities.” Working with established volunteer programs like Spokane County United Way we are able to teach our students the value of volunteering, even as they benefit from volunteers helping them. CISSC also utilizes Volunteer Match to find volunteer opportunities and volunteers.
