Sustained Engagement with a Single Community Partner
Lear, Darcy W.; Sanchez, Alejandro
Hispania, v96 n2 p238-251 Jun 2013
As scholarly work has recently turned its attention to the role of the community partner in Community Service-Learning (CSL) relationships, empirical frameworks for describing and executing community partnerships have emerged. This article applies those frameworks to one such partnership, which is presented from the perspective of both the community partner and the faculty member. The article details the work of the community partner and faculty member (coauthors) to design and revise CSL projects for a total of seven teams of business Spanish students. These projects advanced the work of a community organization serving Hispanic microentrepreneurs in need of support to formalize and grow their businesses.
