Service-Learning Essentials

My new book, Service-Learning Essentials: Questions, Answers, and Lessons Learned, is at Jossey-Bass for review and publication in 2014!

It is based on the many questions I am asked by service-learning novices, experienced practitioners, and critics—fundamental and straightforward, demanding and challenging—about its purpose and value, how to do it and how to do it better, how we will know whether it makes a difference, and how the powerful combination of service and learning can catalyze broader and deeper engagement between higher education institutions and communities around the world and in our own backyards.

In this spirit, I offer questions, answers, and lessons learned to stimulate the further growth of service-learning across higher education, to refine our practice, and to inspire deeper reflection on how service-learning can reach its virtually limitless potential to enrich student learning, to enhance communities, and to improve higher education institutions.
