By providing a basic road map for addressing the critical ethical issues in service-learning, this book will prepare students, faculty, and administrators for the sometimes difficult ethical dilemmas that arise during the service-learning process.

Andrea Chapdelaine is acting vice president for academic affairs and associate professor of psychology at Albright College. Ana Ruiz is associate professor of psychology, and Judith Warchal is associate professor of psychology and coordinator of the Master of Arts in Community Counseling, both at Alvernia College. Carole Wells is associate professor of psychology and interim assistant dean at Kutztown University.

Divided into six parts, this book:

Provides a synopsis of the theoretical context of moral decision-making; principles that are most relevant to ethical decision-making in service-learning; a proposed code of ethics for students, faculty, and administrators; and a model of ethical decision-making

Presents hypothetical ethical dilemmas for students, faculty, and administrators, followed by the application of a model of ethical decision-making to resolve the dilemmas

Reviews current literature on formative and summative assessment in service-learning, and provides an overview of risk management

Includes an appendix of additional hypothetical dilemmas that consider several perspectives, followed by a set of questions to guide the reader through the model of ethical decision-making
