Educating the Civic Professional: Reconfigurations and Resistances
Peters, Scott J.
Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning, v11 n1 p47-58 Fall 2004
This article explores an important purpose that some scholars in professional programs of study are utilizing service-learning to pursue: educating the civic professional by integrating education for work and citizenship. While such a purpose holds promise, an examination of a case study from the field of landscape architecture illustrates the ways in which its pursuit can be profoundly challenging. As the story reveals, it can require faculty, students, and community members to undergo several fundamental reconfigurations in attitudes, identities, and practices, each of which generates significant resistance.
