Partnerships for Service-Learning: Impacts on Communities and Students (0470450576) cover image
The recent expansion of service-learning initiatives throughout American higher education is accompanied by the risk of idealistic and exuberant experimentation. Motivated by a great need for conscientiousness in the invention and execution of service-learning partnerships, Partnerships for Service-Learning distills a collection of important and enlightening case examples, at once readably anecdotal, substantively rigorous, and critically reflective. University presidents, academic officers, student affairs administrators, directors, deans, faculty, student leaders, and K12 administrators who oversee programs with outside partners will benefit from this enlightening work.
