The Future of Service-Learning in Higher Education: Theories, Models, and Directions

Saturday, October 1, 2005
Gettysburg College
Gettysburg, PA

This conference brings together a wide range of scholars to discuss critical issues for the future of service-learning in higher education. The keynote speakers will be Amy Cohen, Director of Learn and Serve America, Corporation for National and Community Service, and Ira Harkavy, Associate Vice President and Founding Director of the Center for Community Partnerships, University of Pennsylvania. The conference is structured as a “working session” around chapters in the just-released book Service-Learning in Higher Education: Critical Issues and Directions (Palgrave, 2005). Three strands – theoretical discussions of service-learning, exemplary models of service-learning, and future directions for service-learning – will be run concurrently. Book chapter
authors, discussants, and attendees will have the opportunity to engage in substantive dialogue on issues of social justice, student resistance, student voice, institutionalization, and community engagement and reciprocity.

Conference registration is $50, and includes breakfast, lunch, and a complimentary copy of Service-Learning in Higher Education (free shipping offered with early registration by September 16, 2005). Full information about the conference and registration is available at:
