Voices from the Trenches: Faculty Perspectives on Support for Sustaining Service-Learning
Lambright, Kristina T.; Alden, Allison F.
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v16 n2 p9-45 Jun 2012
Using data collected from three colleges, the authors examine how faculty members view the level of support for service-learning at their respective institutions. There is variation among the institutions in perceived instructor and administrator support for service-learning, availability of support services, and attitudes regarding consideration of service-learning in personnel review processes. The authors also explored the degree to which individual instructors have been able to create and sustain service-learning opportunities for their students and found important differences among the colleges. The findings have implications for efforts to sustain service-learning at both faculty and institutional levels. (Contains 5 tables.)
