Deepening the Institutionalization of Service-Learning: The Added Value of Assessing the Social Return of Investment
Stanton-Nichols, Kathleen; Hatcher, Julie; Cecil, Amanda
Metropolitan Universities, v26 n2 p47-74 2015
Strategies to institutionalize service-learning are well documented (Furco 1996; Holland, 2000). Using Kecskes (2009) Community-Engaged Department Rubric we evaluated service-learning institutionalization within a school at a metropolitan campus. As a result, we propose adding an additional dimension, social return on investment. This added dimension helps academic leaders to understand the benefits, for a variety of stakeholders, of investing in service-learning and more broadly in campus-community partnerships. Implications and recommendations are offered to replicate this analysis.
