The Artful Partnership:
Advancement and Community Service Learning

The Artful Partnership: Advancement and Community Service LearningAs a vehicle for enhancing students' sense of civic responsibility and part of a national effort made by higher education institutions to re-examine public purposes, community service learning (CSL) has emerged on nearly every college campus during the past decade. Through CSL and other engagement activities, universities cultivate stronger partnerships with their local communities that not only enhance student learning, but also in many cases have a profound impact on pressing social needs. And yet, as compelling as these stories of student and community engagement can be, they often go untold - to our donors, to policy makers, and to the public at large.
