WORKING WITH FACULTY AND COMMUNITY PARTNERS TO ESTABLISH ALIGNED AND SUSTAINABLE SERVICE-LEARNING

Published on

We know service-learning is a high-impact practice that can improve students’ academic
outcomes and teach civic responsibility and life-skills; however, facilitating connections
between faculty and community partners that are mutually beneficial, aligned, and
sustainable sometimes seems challenging. This session provides participants with
resources and tried-and-true strategies for developing these connections.
