The focus of this paper is the transformative and transcendental nature of the service learning experience for Regis University graduate education students, in the Education Research Methods and Critical Reflection course (EDRS600). In an eight-week intensive framework, the course is a unique combination of Jesuit values, Ignatian pedagogy, service learning, and action research. Via the mechanism of reflection, inherent in the Ignatian pedagogy and the process of their work and action research at their service learning sites, students often experience transcendence and transformation that further aligns them with Jesuit values and prepares them to be ethical, connected, proactive members of their professional communities.
