4) Service-Learning (S-L)
Service-Learning (S-L) is a pedagogy that combines academic study with meaningful community service and continuous reflection. Active community service and global learning opportunities are two main focuses of Liberal arts education at Lingnan University. Apart from providing research opportunities in S-L projects, innovation and entrepreneurship have also become an important component in S-L. Students will integrate innovative elements in planning S-L projects with a set of tools that greatly benefit their personal growth and future career development.
Being recognized as a key element of liberal arts education, S-L becomes a graduation requirement for all first year undergraduate students joining Lingnan from 2016-2017 onwards. This requires students to complete a service project of at least 30 hours (including preparatory service training) in conjunction with an academic course that has S-L elements offered by academic departments and/or the Office of Service-Learning, or approved courses offered by overseas institutions.
