The Office of Service Learning and Community Action (SLCA) promotes civic engagement in the form of service learning through curricular and co-curricular activities. The SLCA works closely with community partners to identify, understand, and address community needs, help re-frame real-world social justice issues, and discover how Emerson can best contribute its strengths toward the public good while practicing its core values such as teaching excellence, intercultural competence, and ethical engagement.
