Service learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience.

In the Malay tradition of “Gotong-royong” the participants will visit local village communities and experience firsthand their culture and lifestyle. The students will study issues, brainstorm and come up with plans and implement them to help the community. From the practical experience, they will gain a variety of skills especially in the decision-making process, communication, and civic participation. The communities involved will participate as supervisors, collaborators, and recipients. Service learning creates better understanding and respect between communities and students.
