What leaders in the field are saying about Service-Learning Course Design for Community Colleges:

This book, like the diverse student population served by community colleges, provides wide-ranging perspectives on service-learning.  From developing models to assessing outcomes, the chapters focus on providing beneficial learning experiences to community college students.  As this book demonstrates, even with the family and work challenges faced by many community college students, service learning can be a meaningful part of their education.

A book long overdue that moves the field forward. Filled with theoretical and practical information, Service-Learning Course Design for Community Colleges is useful for the beginning or experienced service-learning practitioner and suffused with strategies and tools for all. A must to have in your bookcase, classroom, and office. It will not get dusty!
