Service Learning and Community Colleges: Building a National Network. Final Progress Report.
American Association of Community Colleges, Washington, DC.
This is the final progress report for the American Association of Community College's (AACC's) Learn and Serve America Program. It covers the time period between September 1, 1994 and August 31, 1997. The goal of the program is to develop an infrastructure for service learning at America's community colleges. Outcomes show that all 10 colleges that have participated in the program no longer rely upon AACC funds for program maintenance, and that the programs have made significant contributions to communities. The schools participating in the program have become models for other colleges who are developing service-learning programs, and collegiality has developed among all involved in the program. The AACC Service Learning Clearinghouse has assisted faculty, staff, students, and administrators at more than 650 community colleges in its three years of existence; all two-year colleges have received program-related announcements and publications during the three-year grant period. Due to the success of the program, AACC has received an additional grant to continue the Learn and Serve America Program and its services, such as the clearinghouse. This document includes a list of colleges who have received funds for service learning from AACC and the amount of the grants received. (LD)
