Description


The book is well illustrated as authors use specific campus examples where service-learning has been incorporated into the curriculum and student-life arenas... The content is meaty and this an active read where readers will want to break out their highlighters and sticky notes....Advisors seeking to learn, educate, or create commitment on their campuses will find that this book offers ways to do just that. More importantly, the book provides the opportunity for readers to be an active part of change.--NACADA Journal

As a new generation of practitioners engages with service learning, at a time when higher education faces questions about learning outcomes and costs, and in the context of such issues as globalization and the environment, this book poses important questions about practice, institutional sustainability, and future directions. Among these are: What counts as service learning? What value does it bring to institutions? Is it appropriate for all students? How is globalization impacting service learning?

Divided into three thematic parts, this book successively covers institutional and administrative issues; service learning as a springboard for research; and presents new practices that address emerging challenges and changing student populations.
