The purpose of this handbook is to provide information and tools to help faculty incorporate service-learning within existing courses or create new service-learning courses. It also provides academic advisors, department chairs and others in the academic community with an introduction to service-learning so that they can support faculty efforts. This handbook explores conceptual questions about service-learning and offers practical suggestions for implementation. Community Service Programs staff (located in Commuter Affairs and Community Service, 1195 Stamp Student Union, 301-314-CARE) can help you identify community contacts and additional resources such as the Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning (the leading peer-reviewed service-learning journal), reflection guides, bibliographies, electronic listservs and discipline-specific monographs on service-learning.
