Description  | Table of Contents  | Sample Chapter


This seminal volume takes service-learning to a new level by demonstrating how it can meet its academic and community goals while developing student leaders. Models from campuses across the country offer successful practices for recruiting and training student leaders in service-learning, using students to staff key administrative positions, and establishing student-faculty partnerships to design and run community-based courses.

According to Campus Compact's member survey, nearly three-quarters of colleges and universities cite both student leadership development and student civic engagement as key outcomes in their strategic plans. Students as Colleagues is a must for anyone on campus seeking to achieve these institutional goals.

Edited by Edward Zlotkowski, Nicholas V. Longo, and James R. Williams.

What leaders in the field are saying about Students As Colleagues: Expanding the Circle of Service-Learning Leadership:

Students as Colleagues provides colleges and universities with a strong rationale and specific models for expanding the role of students in all aspects of campus engagement. Its publication fills a large gap in the higher education resource library. Richard M. Battistoni
Director, Feinstein Institute for Public Service
Providence College

Students as Colleagues is a stunning testament to the rich educational value that student expertise and leadership can bring to the civically engaged classroom. It is not a step-by-step guide to replicating the programs it describes, but a source of ideas and inspiration for students, faculty, and service-learning professionals alike. Stephanie Raill, student,
Macalester College

Engaged students are vital to a flourishing democracy. This collection gives powerful examples of institutional support for student leadership in the academic curriculum that can help catalyze engagement on campuses around the country. We should all take notice, especially those of us who see service-learning as a vehicle for civic renewal. Eduardo J. Padrón
Miami Dade College
