The professional service learning courses are developed to incorporate ideas of social enterprises which demonstrates the characteristics of College of Management to integrate professional skills and social care.
Domestic Service Learning Projects:
Students work with domestic social enterprises and non-profit organizations to design service learning action items and solicit the College of Management students to employ what they have learned to conduct social improvement plans; and promote social justice and innovation activities.

Overseas Service Learning Union
The Overseas Service Learning Union (OSL Union) was established under the Fu Jen Catholic University Service Learning Center in 2010. It’s a student autonomous learning platform which works closely with overseas groups of Service Learning Center to build a communication platform among different service learning groups. Through training workshops and common activities to maximize the benefits of resources from each group. It assists service learning groups to go abroad, apply for possible internal and external subsidy, and organize training workshops and collective presentations after all groups return to Fu Jen. Therefore, each group can fully complete their learning journey and sustain the efforts they have worked on each specific site. The Union forms a family-like relation and promotes cooperation among members and the groups. The long term goal of the Union is to establish a “Service Learning Area Community” to make the sites that students are working with to exchange resources and create more opportunities.
