Shifting from S-L to social impact... Yale-NUS College
Service learning is often faculty-led, and situated between polarities of charity and justice. This study describes how service learning is student-led and approached through the lens of social impact through an integrated office at Yale-NUS College, a young liberal arts college in Singapore co-founded by Yale University and the National University of Singapore. The underlying ethos and programmes offered via this particular office are first described. Impact is subsequently illustrated through 2 case studies before concluding remarks.
