In August of 1994, the Office of Community Service-Learning at Augsburg College offered a weeklong institute on service-learning for faculty members from Augsburg College. The institute was funded by a grant from the Minnesota Higher Education Coordinating Board under the Youth Works Higher Education Program of the Minnesota Youth Works Act of 1993. During the first part of the week, faculty members who had previously used service-learning in their classes met to discuss the philosophical and practical aspects of service-learning and to design the remainder of the workshop for others who were developing course-related service components. The institute participants spent the third day doing community service through Project in Pride for Living and experienced the satisfactions and challenges that go along with this activity. The remainder of the institute was spent "deconstructing" the service experience, hearing from community service agency representatives, and developing ways that service-learning could be used in a variety of disciplines and courses at Augsburg.
