Service Learning & Community Affairs

Working with students to create diverse learning opportunities

The Department of Service Learning & Community Affairs serves as the primary administrative link between the community and AUC's physicians-in-training. Consistent with the University’s desire to produce physicians with a lifelong commitment to community service, the department serves the following functions:

  • Assists faculty members with incorporating service learning into existing courses
  • Builds and maintains partnerships with community agencies
  • Provides students with supervised credit-bearing service learning opportunities which support their professional identification and understanding of the social responsibility implicit in a physician’s role
  • Assists the wide variety of extracurricular student organizations in developing service learning projects which directly address the health needs of St. Maarten residents
