Quality Community-Campus Partnerships
Forming Sustainable Partnerships that have Meaning and Impact
Meaningful partnerships are integral to service learning programs because they connect and reinforce in‐class work and readings with real life experiences. They provide an opportunity for students to think critically about civic responsibility, as well as examine and challenge personal values, beliefs, and opinions. Community partnerships provide a platform for students to ask questions, share ideas and experiences, challenge current solutions to community issues and develop plans to address community needs.
