Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL
November 2-4, 2011
Illinois Campus Compact, DePaul University, National-Louis University, Loyola University Chicago, Columbia College Chicago, Northern Illinois University and the International Association for Research on Service-learning and Community Engagement are proud to invite you to the International Association for Research on Service-learning and Community Engagement Annual Conference. The conference will be held November 2-4, 2011 at the historic Palmer House Hilton in the heart of downtown Chicago (“the loop”).
The featured theme for the 11th annual conference is “Research for Impact: Scholarship Advancing Social Change.
Service-learning and community engagement have evolved locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally as effective methods for teaching and learning. In what ways has the scholarship on these methods contributed to positive social change? The conference will highlight research that critically evaluates and illuminates the long-term impact of service-learning and community engagement on students, faculty, and community partners and, most importantly, on the social, economic and political issues they seek to transform. Through a variety of presentation styles, Chicago will provide a dynamic venue for scholarship that articulates how, when, where and why service-learning and community engagement influence critical issues locally, nationally and globally. Veteran, new and emerging scholars from diverse backgrounds and settings will exhibit the highest quality research that advances both the understanding and practice of collaboratively engaging students, educators, and community partners in advancing social change.
