Service Learning for Civic Engagement Series

Edited by Series Editor: Gerald Eisman, formerly Faculty Scholar, CSU Office of Community Service Learning, and currently Acting Director, Institute for Civic & Community Engagement at San Francisco State University



As institutions of higher education embrace civic engagement, service-learning has emerged as a most effective way to engage students in field experiences where they will confront profound questions about the relevance of academic learning to addressing community needs.




Each volume in this series is organized around a specific community issue, and provides multiple perspectives on both the theoretical foundations for understanding the corresponding issue, and purposeful approaches to addressing it.




The contributors to these books – who represent disciplines in the sciences, humanities and social sciences – offer vivid examples of how they have integrated civic engagement in their courses, explain their objectives, and demonstrate how they assess outcomes.




They provide a panoply of exemplary practice, insight, and course materials to enhance civic learning.




To stimulate the adaptation of the approaches described in these books, each volume includes an Activity / Methodology table that summarizes key elements of each example, such as class size and other disciplinary applications, as in these examples:
Race Poverty and Social Justice and Gender Identity and Equity.




Contributors to the first two volumes represent a wide array of disciplines:




American Studies, Communications, Counseling, Criminology, Education, Engineering, Food Science, Ethnic Studies, Fashion, Education, Genetics,
Gerontology, Interior Design, Philosophy, Political Science, Public Policy,
Psychology, Rhetoric, Sociology, Women’s Studies.
