    Service Learning. As an urban university, service-learning is part of Northeastern’s ethical mission. But more than good works, service-learning at Northeastern is an academically rigorous experience. Through partnerships with schools, neighborhood agencies, health clinics, and nonprofit organizations, the university embeds service into academic coursework. Students engage in hands-on service to address community needs, learning by applying course concepts to their experiences, and reflecting on those experiences back in the classroom.
