Wang, Yan; Jackson, Golden
Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning, v11 n2 p39-48 Spr 2005
This research assesses (a) students' perceptions of civic involvement from either a charity or social justice perspective, and (b) the relationship among six dimensions of civic involvement (Knowledge, Skill, Efficacy, Value, Responsibility, and Commitment) for developing a charity or social justice perspective. Pre- and post-course analysis showed that (a) the charitable view of civic involvement was dominant; and (b) the six dimensions were distinct constructs in describing civic involvement. (Contains 4 figures and 4 tables.)
