Institutionalizing Service Learning in Community Colleges. Research Brief. AACC-RB-01-3
Prentice, Mary
American Association of Community Colleges (NJ1)
In 1994 and again in 1997, AACC selected groups of institutions, known as Horizons colleges, to work together in collaborative mentoring relationships to build campus-based service-learning programs. While the number of service learning programs has grown significantly, not all of those programs are sustained by colleges for the long term. This brief presents the results of a survey--with questions grouped around the four institutionalization issues of infrastructure, faculty, students, and community partnerships--to determine how community colleges nationwide successfully integrate service learning into institutional culture, climate, and expectations so that it can be sustained. (Contains 9 figures, 18 select electronic resources, and 8 select print resources.)
