Merciful Practices of a Business Program: A Case Study
Warrington, Traci B.; Nicholas, Arlene J.; Keenan, Judith
Journal of Catholic Higher Education, v27 n1 p83-95 Win 2008
The service-learning experiences provided by the Business & Economics Department are carefully crafted to exemplify the Mercy mission at Salve Regina University. By practicing what they are learning, and teaching others what they know, students are able to retain a higher percentage of that which is taught. It also gives them the opportunity to put their knowledge and skills to work, moving beyond a conceptual understanding. The additional benefit of the integration of Mercy culture in learning provides an opportunity for students to act in service to their communities and experience how valuable their skills are to others. Students who have completed the service-learning program have commented about expanding their knowledge, improving their communication skills, and increasing feelings of accomplishment as they work with diverse groups and individuals. As educators, we want to ensure there is an understanding of the benefits bestowed upon some and the responsibility to others who are less fortunate.
