Levitt, Catherine; Schriehans, Cynthia
Journal of Instructional Pedagogies, v3 Jun 2010
For this study, one hundred and twenty student reflection papers (undergraduate and graduate) from a service learning extracurricular event titled, "Community University Educational Summit" (CUES) was analyzed. Over a two-year period, this event was held on one Saturday during the month of October at California State University San Bernardino's Palm Desert Campus. Reflection papers used for this study determined the value associated with adding extracurricular service learning education to required campus management courses. Results show that this service learning event increased five specific learning objectives for management students; (A) practical application of course concepts, (B) enhanced knowledge of course concepts, (C) commitment to support nonprofit organizations, (D) motivation to participate in volunteerism and, (E) the opportunity to participate in an internship.
