Institutions of higher education invest time and money directing cocurricular programs that allow students to formally engage in the local community. Community-service learning is one type of program recently dubbed "high impact" (Kuh, 2008). However, it is not enough to simply refer to a program as "high impact": it is essential to demonstrate actual impact on student learning. This report provides a portrait of one community service-learning program's assessment of student learning.
