Our Favorite Service Learning Books

This time of year, we can count on our service-learning listserves conducting a nation-wide discussion of the best books and resources for service-learning and civic engagement. Below are a few of the most compelling submissions we’re seeing.  Please let the Center know if there are any of particular interest to you and we will either invest in our resource library or work with the Gelman Librarians to see that you get a copy in your hands.  Contact Wendy Wagner with those suggestions: wagnerw@gwu.edu.
