Service Learning and Civic Engagement at Tennessee Tech University

TTU Vision: TTU will be one of the best universities in the nation through a commitment to the life-long success of our students.

Service Learning Vision: Tennessee Tech University has a rich tradition of service and an opportunity to instill in our students an ethic of caring and a sense of responsibility for making our world better. We want to move beyond service and to transform our university and our community through sustainable partnerships.
