We are delighted that you have agreed to participate in this exciting opportunity for TVI faculty and students to become involved in Service-Learning!
The concept of service-learning is not new, of course, but in the past decade, many higher education professionals have taken the lead in promoting this as an essential dimension of the college experience. Campus Compact, for example is a consortium of over 500 college presidents who have mandated integrating service programs into their institutions. Simultaneously, the American Association of Community Colleges has recently awarded 15 grants to community colleges to create Learn and Serve Program, to develop models for service-learning specifically in community and technical-vocational colleges.
