Description

The presenters will share research showing how service-learning contributes to student success as defined by persistence to graduation. Then as a group, we will identify learning outcomes (knowledge, skills, and values) associated with another concept of student success, that of engaged citizenship in a democratic society. We will explore how service-learning can contribute to these outcomes and models for assessing the extent to which students achieve them. Through this session, administrators and faculty will be better able to envision service-learning as a strategy for increasing student success defined both as retention to graduation and as enhanced capacity for civic engagement.
