Service Learning Centers Panel

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This panel features different service-learning professionals from Boston-area universities in the hopes of elucidating some of the processes and philosophies behind how institutions form, support, and sustain ongoing, mutually beneficial partnerships with the community. In this work, two main questions are at the heart of service-learning course and program design: 1) What should the students be learning? and 2) What does the community need? However, given different institutional structures, goals, and resources, these questions may be approached in a variety of ways- and the aim of this panel is to remove some of the mystery behind these sometimes complex dynamics. Panelists and audience members will collaboratively explore how, if this work were a continuum with the university on one side and the community on the other, partnerships can be fostered in the middle.
