Eleventh in AAHE and Campus Compact’s series on service-learning in the disciplines, this book focuses on incorporating service-learning in communication, one of the fastest growing disciplines in higher education. The first part provides a strong argument on why service-learning should be part of the communication curriculum, while the second part dramatically demonstrates the ways in which service-learning has a natural affinity for the communication discipline.
