Asking the Community: A Case Study of Community Partner Perspectives
Worrall, Laurie
Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning, v14 n1 p5-17 Fall 2007
This qualitative study is based on in-depth interviews with 40 representatives from 12 community-based organizations (CBOs) working with the Steans Center for Community-based Service-Learning at DePaul University in Chicago. These CBOs see themselves as partners with the University in educating college students about the realities of racial and socioeconomic disparities in the United States through direct interactions with CBO programs and clients. Findings include: motivations for these CBOs to partner with DePaul tend to differ from the motivations to continue the partnership; the benefits to working with service-learners outweigh the challenges; and CBO's perceptions of DePaul University have been positively influenced by their relationships with the Steans Center.
