Program Description

The underlying aim of civic engagement is to produce meaningful service and experience to all involved participants. In the example of service learning, this includes community partners, students and faculty. By solving real problems and addressing real needs, students learn to apply classroom learning to a real world context. At the same time, students provide valuable services to schools and communities. The service learning in Cape Town, South Africa will provide UT students the an opportunity to engage in a combination of lectures, research and service in the areas of Social Justice, Poverty and HIV/AIDS in post-apartheid South Africa.
