This presentation describes the pedagogical foundation, learning objectives, and initial results of an innovation to an undergraduate interdisciplinary pre-service disability studies certificate program to include engaged service-learning. Service-learning is defined, the courses in which community engagement were expected are described, and student and community partner reflections are shared. The identified benefits, challenges, and next steps to community engaged service-learning within the program will be discussed.
