Service-learning is identified as a high-impact educational practice (HIP) by the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U). Interactive service-learning courses promote achievement and improve quality of learning in traditionally underserved student populations, such as students of color, the economically disadvantaged, first-generation college students, and students with different learning styles.
