In this talk, we position service learning as a pedagogical tool that allows for a focus on diversity, inclusion, outreach, and belonging in mathematics. In particular, we highlight the first service-learning course offered by the Department of Mathematics at The Ohio State University, Intersections of Mathematics of Society: Hidden Figures. We will discuss service learning, what it is, what it isn’t, and ways the reflective activities tied to this approach can be utilized in other types of undergraduate math courses.
