At NP, we encourage community involvement as part of our belief in giving back to society and our mission in nurturing a big-hearted spirit in our students. That aside, Service-Learning, launched in 2016 as NP’s signature pedagogy, gives every student the opportunity to use what they learn in their course to co-create solutions with partners to address community issues. We also moved our youth expedition projects online so that students could continue to volunteer with overseas communities.
In a year punctuated with unprecedented COVID-19 restrictions, our staff and students did not stop short at reaching out to the community, albeit in a safe and responsible way. Here is a cross-section of our efforts, ranging from caring for the marginalised to promoting various social causes.
With the advent of COVID-19, we quickly pivoted to eService-Learning to ensure that Service-Learning (S-L) can continue as part of our core curriculum to create a positive impact in the community. During the academic year 2020, we implemented 37 modules with eS-L across 31 diplomas.
