Service-Learning as a Southern Strategy for Innovation in Undergraduate Education.
O'Connell, William R., Jr.
This is a report on the development of a service-learning project conducted in the southern region since 1967. The program provides college students with internships in community agencies to work on social and economic problems. Each student is assigned a project and works under the supervision of a project committee made up of a host agency official, a faculty counselor, and often a technical representative. Each intern must make a final report to his host agency. Federal funding has been used for the service-learning programs, but states also provide financing. Agencies that have used the student interns have been satisfied with their work. (CS)
