This paper describes a Service Learning course offered to residential college students within a Jesuit University who are expected to perform service during the year. The authors previously taught the course without the semester-long service requirement, with great success. The course titled, “Technology and Society”, is ideally suited for a service-learning format. The students work in an inner-city high school for the service component. A major element of the course is each student’s weekly reflection on the service component, and its impact on the student.
