General Information

Welcome to Boston, where tradition meets innovation! Boston is home to historic Faneuil Hall and The Old State House, places where revolution and freedom were debated. Boston is also home of the Innovation District, an expansive new creative space nestled next to the historic Boston Harbor, where art and science collide to fuel the new entrepreneurship sector.

IARSLCE is excited to bring researchers, teachers, students, and community members to Boston to reflect on our history within the field of service-learning and community engagement, while expanding the depth and breadth of the field to highlight cutting edge methods and practices. Our conference will highlight the historical foundations of modern innovation to reveal how past research inspires original research questions and innovative methods to advance the field into the 21st Century.

Innovation is the integration of new ideas, new models, and new methods. Effective and efficient innovation is the ability to utilize these news ideas, models, and methods to advance research and practice and promote revolutionary outcomes. Innovation requires thoughtful reflection and the integration of lessons learned from the past. Inspired from tradition, the research of service-learning and community engagement seeks to inspire a new vision for the future. A new vision will consider the foundation of the field while integrating innovative research techniques and targets to advance our understanding on the impact of service-learning and community engagement on all stakeholders.
