This document discusses an evaluation of the Service Learning Program at Mount Wachusett Community College (MWCC). The study used a questionnaire that was previously designed to measure the extent to which the program objectives were being met by the students, faculty, and community partners of the Service Learning Program at MWCC. A total of 20 students, 16 faculty, and 20 community partners were randomly surveyed. The response rate was 40% for students, 81.25% for faculty, and 65% for community partners. Results indicated that the stakeholders of the program believed the service learning experience was of value and worth. Students commented on the importance of good communication and time management skills. Faculty indicated that students had the opportunity for real learning about life and work and practical application of the course curriculum. Challenges for the faculty included finding the time for additional tasks associated with the experience.
