The University of Central Arkansas is committed to academic service-learning. Academic service-learning is a course-based teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities.


Students are exposed to a few service-learning experiences throughout the degree program. One of these experiences is the College Square Senior Fit Club. Students are exposed to a hands-on education in pre-participation paperwork, fitness assessment, and exercise prescription while working with an older adult for 10 weeks.
