AAMU Service and Learning Communities and Volunteerism

           Service and Learning Communities and Volunteerism aims to educate AAMU students on the need to willfully serve the community in conjunction with classroom learning.  Students are afforded the opportunity to provide hands-on service that will allow them to apply what they learn in class to the real world and then reflect on their experience to reinforce the link between service & learning.  Students will understand and apply the pillars of character: responsibility, caring, fairness, honesty, citizenship, leadership and trustworthiness, while exemplifying​ the University's motto "Service is Sovereignty."


What is Service Learning?

Service learning combines meaningful service to the community with curriculum-based instruction. Students improve academic learning skills by applying what they learned in class to the real world. Then they reflect on their experience to reinforce the link between their service and their learning. It is truly learning by doing!
