Partnerships: A Journal of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement

Posted by North Carolina Campus Compact on November 13, 2018

Read the latest edition of Partnerships: A Journal of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement, North Carolina Campus Compact’s peer-reviewed, online journal, hosted by the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

The fall 2018 issue of Partnerships: A Journal of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement marks the conclusion of a decade for us in 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.
