Explores ways in which college students' community service contributes to citizenship education. A qualitative study over six years, involving interviews, surveys, and observation of students, examined how a more caring sense of self may be enhanced through student involvement. Three major themes in student experiences are discussed: exploration of the self; understanding of others; and views of social good. (Author/MSE)
