Service learning enables students to provide real service to the community as part of their learning/educational experience. Service learning can take many forms in security, including maturity assessment, security planning, awareness training, product research, product evaluation, and facilities or procedural audit. These projects help students learn to communicate with non-technical staff, apply security training, obtain experience in a real world environment, develop professional documentation, and contribute to their neighborhood. This paper describes the benefits and challenges the author has experienced for each type, but also discusses tools that can help security instructors in implementing service learning in their security courses.
