Garcia, Rudy
Community College Journal, v74 n3 p14-16 Dec 2003-Jan 2004
This article features a service learning program at Albuquerque TVI Community College which provides hands-on civic education to its students. The Service Learning Program began in 1994 with a $5,000 grant from the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC). The success of the program provided for the development of the Department of Experiential Learning in 1999. The program aims to provide students with community experiences that build upon their academic understanding of their coursework while providing them with venues to serve their community in a civic role.
