Service Learning

Community service and humanitarian projects play a significant and varied role in the Ross School curriculum. The motto “Know Thyself in Order to Serve” reflects the School’s commitment to preparing students for meaningful lives and leadership in the global community. In support of this value, all faculty, students, and families are encouraged to participate. Some recent service initiatives have included building Habitat for Humanity houses locally and internationally; maintaining local trails, beaches, and roadways; hosting Veterans Day luncheons; and painting murals at the Animal Rescue Facility.

Service in the community by Ross School students, faculty, and administrators includes initiatives that are fully integrated into the classroom experience. Senior Projects and M-Term courses focus on community service both locally and abroad. There are service-oriented electives and independent study options, as well as schoolwide programs and student organizations that address particular needs and issues in the local and global communities.
