Service Learning


The Service Learning Program consists of courses taught by the best High Point University faculty – faculty have to compete for the opportunity and are specially trained to teach in the program.

Thanks to an over $100,000 gift from the Silvershein/Gutenstein Family Foundation, High Point University has been able to train over 55 faculty from every school on campus in Service Learning. What began in 2011 as a program with three faculty has become a campus-wide approach to experiential education.
