New edition of online journal Partnerships now available

April 19, 2017

Partnerships Logo_P onlyThe Spring 2017 edition of Partnerships: A Journal of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement (Volume 8, No. 1) is now available online.

This spring 2017 issue of Partnerships offers new perspectives and research on enduring matters for service-learning scholars and practitioners. The three articles tackle distinct areas of concern: co-curricular service to complement academic service-learning, international service-learning, and curriculum development. The books reviewed in this issue confront the “why” of our engaged work, even as we regularly strive to disseminate the best possible practices within engaged scholarship.

The open access, peer-reviewed journal is hosted by the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and edited by UNCG’s Dr. Spoma Jovanovic. The Spring 2017 edition is available online here.
