Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Really love all the campus examples and the detail that went into writing each...Really brings the concept to life and encourages others to be creative."

--Kim Forcier, University of Texas at San Antonio

"The coverage on the different types of Service Learning is very good. Also, the information provided about the various aspects of service learning which students will likely never have considered as options and the characteristics of the typical project are quite helpful."
