New Issue of Partnerships Journal

January 31, 2019

The fall 2018 issue of Partnerships: A Journal of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement marks the conclusion of a decade publishing articles that recognize successful engaged learning depends on effective partnerships. Thus, it is fitting that this issue’s articles address directly through empirical research the impact of service-learning partnerships in three distinct areas: how academic-based service yields stronger results than community service; how service-learning directed toward at-risk youth can and should expand to include longitudinal studies; and, how service-learning when paired with sustainability efforts draws greater attention to much needed eco-justice around the world. Access the journal online (free).
