USD’s Gallagher Center for Experiential Learning & Education Abroad (GC) provides students with opportunities to enroll in service-learning courses, travel and serve on alternative break trips, participate in National Days of Service or simply volunteer your time with a local community agency.

GC encourages faculty members to offer service-learning opportunities for students by supporting community-based projects. More information for faculty about community-based learning and research is available in the .
