New issue of Partnerships Journal now available

November 8, 2017

Partnerships: A Journal of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement is North Carolina Campus Compact’s peer-reviewed, online journal, hosted by the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

The fall 2017 issue includes articles on how service-learning has progressed since its inception and how the practice could make greater impact in the future. Our featured article “The Neoliberal Starfish Conspiracy” by Randy Stoecker, author of the 2016 book, Liberating Service Learning and the Rest of Higher Education Civic Engagement, provides follow-up to his controversial argument that we need to invert how service-learning is considered in order to maximize community impact. Other articles in this issue likewise consider how to improve partnership outcomes through graduate level programming and, from scholars at UNC Pembroke, a case study of a specialty course in public relations. We also feature two book reviews of Using Action Inquiry in Engaged Research: An Organizing Guide and Where’s the Wisdom in Service-Learning?  We hope you find these readings relevant to your teaching and research.

The journal is free and available online here.
