Re: Xavier University Service Learning Program (XU SLP)

Service Learning Program (SLP) is an educational and curriculum-based approach that balances the student’s
experiences in two different learning environments – the formal classroom and the local community engagement
rooted in the Ignatian Pedagogy. In the context of XU, service-learning seeks to foster a commitment by developing
students with competence, conscience, and commitment through a lived experience of the Jesuit mission – in
solidarity with those in need (preferential option for the poor), and in the light and provision of the Jesuit Province
Roadmap and Sustainable Development Goals.

Service-learning is a powerful transformative experience of the students that embodies their Jesuit education in the
pursuit of student’s intellectual development and social formation. Students will be able to work collaboratively within
community context, understand the needs for community service and able to apply their academic competencies
learned in the classroom. It is an experiential learning experience that transpires a reflective-action inspired from
the Ignatian perspective of forming men and women for and with others.
