Faculty and Staff – Additional Readings on Service in Higher Education

If you are looking for more information and research on service in post-secondary education, we suggest starting with Campus Compact’s (2003) text “Introduction to Service-Learning Toolkit: Readings and Resources for Faculty (2nd Ed.).” This good, easy read provides some context for how to implement service in higher education. If you are interested in further readings, here is a list of additional resources to help get you started.
