Service-Learning: Some Academic and Community Recommendations
Kronick, Robert F.; Cunningham, Robert B.
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v17 n3 p139-152 2013
Civic engagement, service-learning, and university-assisted community schools are strong forces in making universities, as anchor institutions, engaged and responsible within their spheres of influence. By helping solve social problems, universities engage in the highest form of learning, come to understand social issues and problems, and escape the problem of inert knowledge, knowledge that is valuable only in a classroom.
