Community Leaders' Perceptions of University and College Efforts To Encourage Civic Engagement.
Brisbin, Richard A., Jr.; Hunter, Susan
Review of Higher Education, v26 n4 p467-86 Sum 2003
Examined the linkage between experiential educational programs that emphasize civic engagement and the activities of local governmental and nonprofit organizations. While leaders of governments and organizations have only irregular contacts with higher education programs that might encourage civic engagement, and leaders perceive a diverse range of benefits and costs associated with student service, they perceive that students' involvement in collective organizations can meaningfully change their sense of civic engagement.
