Sant'Anna Institute

Service Learning


Sant’Anna Institute holds service learning as a pillar of academic excellence. Service learning is a branch of Sant'Anna's Experiential Learning model.

Through service learning students work in tandem with the community through various project types thaty relate to their coursework of a particular class in order to immerse themselves within the framework of the course material and pull from real life examples to learn. The community and the projects students complete become active texts of information for the course subject.

Students’ courses are intimately connected to the needs and current designs of various aspects of the community. They work in tandem with the community to create new ideas and new visions for future improvement.

These projects allow students to apply what they learn in the classroom in a professional manner, which develops their skills and gives back to their host community.

Sant'Anna is partnered with Piano Sociale di Zona dell'Ambito Territoriale Napoli 33, a social cooperative that manages an intergrated system of social services for the communities of the Sorrento Peninsula. Opportunities include: retirement homes, diverse-ability centers, student/youth centers, environmental/agricultural organizations, abuse shelters, and others. 
Sant'Anna is also partners with L.E.S.S. Onlus , an Association based in Naples that works against all forms of discriminations and protects women and people victims of sex trafficking.

Marina Piccola revitalization

by Anthony Principe

 

In this project, architecture students were split into groups of six and tasked with creating a master plan for redesigning the port, Marina Piccola of Sorrento, Italy. The city is currently building an underground walking tunnel from the parking garage in the city down to the port as a way to revitalize and make travel to and from the port easier. By doing this and redesigning parts of the port they hope to encourage more people to the port. As part of the master plan, our student Anthony Principe from Alfred State College, NY, designed a new piazza called Piazza Sant'Antonino above the existing ferry ticketing office.

This video is a portion of overall new port design.
