Service learning combines community service with academic learning objectives, preparation and intellectual reflection. Kettering College creates opportunities for service learning in the Vaughan-Beaven Service Learning Honors Program (SLHP), as well as throughout our entire curriculum.

SLHP students take specially designed courses that will prepare them to assess needs in a community, learn how to meet those needs, and understand and evaluate challenges and success during and after their experience. Kettering College provides many off-campus and extracurricular opportunities — locally and internationally — for students to meet the health care service needs of a variety of communities.

In order to be considered for admission, prospective scholars must have a 3.0 GPA and have already completed 100 hours of service. They also must write an essay indicating how their goals relate to excellence and service.
