Service Learning Positively Impacts Student Involvement, Retention, and Recruitment
Lucy-Bouler, Thomas; Lucy-Bouler, Tink
Journal of Learning in Higher Education, v8 n1 p19-24 Spr 2012
Universities struggle with how to get students more involved and active in the university and community. Providing projects that just collect cans or raise money for a cause, while admirable, are not teaching the students how to be active, how to conduct projects, and give them connections to the community. This paper will describe service learning projects that actually are planned, managed and executed by the students. As students get involved in these projects a sense of community on campus develops which helps with retention, recruitment and future involvement in other projects. (A bibliography is included.)
