Partnering with the Community via Service Learning

by Ann Abbott

I am excited about today's conference at the iHotel on the UIUC campus-- Responding to Immigrants: Bridging Research and Practice to Meet the Needs of immigrants in New Growth Communities.

My session is a workshop--"Partnering with the Community via Service Learning"--from 1:30 - 3:00 in the Humanities Room. (You can see the entire conference schedule here.) It will be a "how-to" workshop, designed specifically for people who want to start a CSL course or program. Community representatives will be welcomed as well; sometimes the initiative for a CSL course comes from the community itself.

Here are some materials that I will share during the workshop.
