While campus engagement with the local community is generally viewed in a positive light, in reality these collaborations are more complex. Presenting a variety of contemporary models and frameworks for community engagement, this book is distinguished by its unique emphasis on campus-community partnerships from the perspective of the community. Bolstered by concrete data, the text addresses the impact of a variety of service-learning arrangements on local communities and focuses on the experiences, both positive and negative, of the community organization. Integrating theoretical, historical, ethical and practical frameworks, the book examines in-depth such emerging models as global service learning, social entrepreneurship, and experiential philanthropy. Vivid case examples drawing from real-life programs that have been implemented in the U.S. and abroad bring these models to life. While the book emphasizes the perspectives of the communities served, it also encompasses the experiences of nonprofit organizations, students, and faculty. Students, faculty, and administrators who are engaged in campus-community partnerships particularly in disciplines that are grounded in community-based learning, such as social work, human services, sociology, and public service studies will find this book to be an important>Key Features:Examines campus-community partnerships from the perspective of the community servedPresents lively and engaging case studies of domestic and global scenariosIncludes the perspectives of nonprofit organizations, students, community members, and facultyIncludes extensive resources for more in-depth study
