The Midwest Consortium for Service-Learning in Higher Education (MCSLHE) promotes, mobilizes, and supports the efforts of Nebraska and South Dakota higher education institutions that are united in strengthening their academic and co-curricular programs through service-learning in their institutions, communities, state and nation. Our primary aims are: (1) to increase the level of commitment, partnerships, support, and communication from member institutions; (2) to expand and diversify the base of faculty involved in service-learning, providing students with quality service-learning, emphasizing civic engagement; (3) to expand and improve relationships with community partners; and (4) to contribute to the field of service-learning through research and evaluations. The Consortium is supported by a Learn & Serve grant.
