Service-Learning in the South. Higher Education and Public Service 1967-1972.
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
The Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) has been operating a program of service-learning in resource development for student interns, public service agencies, and institutions of higher education since 1967. The objectives of the program are: (1) to give manpower assistance to agencies concerned with economic and social development; (2) to provide opportunities for students to participate in the solution of social and economic problems; and (3) to encourage students to consider careers in development programs and public service. This publication is an anthology of articles written by those who first helped to start the service-learning programs and is divided into three sections. Section I deals with the development of the service-learning concept, section II with translation of the concept into a variety of settings, and section III with attempts at evaluating both the concept and practice. A major result of this program has been the emergence of a philosophy that can apply to the broader development of off-campus experiences for students by providing students with opportunities to combine social and economic internships with their college programs.
