Posted by on February 21, 2003

[ed note: don’t quote me on this, but I believe that PHENND is featured in the chapter by James Birge, Brooke Beaird, and Jan Torres, “Partnerships Among Colleges and Universities for Service-Learning.”]



By Barbara Jacoby and Associates

“This splendid volume should become indispensable for everyone interested in service-learning– those in community organizations who work with service-learning programs and those on campuses who are involved in service-learning. These essays will be invaluable aids in helping both groups to assist and learn from each other.”

-Thomas Ehrlich, senior scholar, The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching

To be successful, service-learning must be grounded in a wide range of solid, reciprocal, democratic partnerships. Building Partnerships for Service-Learning assembles leading voices in the field to bring their expertise to bear on this crucial topic. Faculty, administrators, student leaders, and community and corporate leaders will find this volume filled with vital information, exemplary practices, and essential tools needed to make service-learning succeed.

Barbara Jacoby is director of commuter affairs and community service at the University of Maryland, College Park and adviser to the president for America Reads * America Counts. She is the editor of the groundbreaking book Service-Learning in Higher Education published by Jossey-Bass. Jacoby is a sought-after speaker and consultant on service-learning.
