Service Learning has been well documented as a high impact learning strategy that improves engagement and retention. For the most part, I have included service learning projects where our class responds to a research need of a community partner, such as the US Fish and Wildlife Service or Three Rivers Park District. I have also included projects where my students have been involved in teaching biology concepts to local middle school students or organizing sessions for high school career fairs.
