Regional Workshops: Community Colleges and Service-Learning

Posted by on April 9, 2004

The American Association of Community Colleges is sponsoring regional workshops on service learning and civic responsibility, to be hosted by four community colleges this spring and summer. The workshops will feature hands-on learning and strategies to integrate civic responsibility into academic curricula and implement service learning programs on campuses and in communities.

Community college faculty, staff, administrators, students, and community partners are invited to attend the workshops.
