Service Learning and Civic Engagement


The Citadel’s mission is to educate and prepare graduates to become principled leaders in all walks of life by instilling the core values of The Citadel in a challenging intellectual environment. A four year developmental progression of SLCE experiences is a vital part of executing that mission.
