New Edition: Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning

Posted by University of Michigan on April 20, 2015

I am pleased to announce the release of volume 21 number 2 of the Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning (MJCSL). Volume 21 number 1 was released in November.

Since 1994, the MJCSL has been the premier (inter)national, peer-reviewed journal in our field, publishing articles written by faculty and service-learning educators on research, theory, pedagogy, and other issues related to academic (curriculum-based) service-learning and community-engaged scholarship in higher education. The Michigan Journal, published by the University of Michigan’s Edward Ginsberg Center for Community Service and Learning, is a major contributor to the ever-growing literature on service-learning, campus-community partnerships, civic engagement, and engaged scholarship.

Both the fall and current spring issues comprise volume 21 The fall issue contained a special section on global service-learning (GSL) guest co-edited by Richard Kiely (Cornell University) and Eric Hartman (Kansas State University). A second special section on GSL will appear in volume 22 number 1 to be released fall 2015.
