The annual IARSLCE conference is a scholarly venue to disseminate new knowledge on service-learning and community engagement. The focus of presentations, symposia, and keynotes is on research incorporating a variety of theoretical methodologies and perspectives. The conference also serves as a gathering place for networking and association business meetings for members. A significant component of the conference is the mentoring of graduate students and new faculty members interested in advancing their own research agendas in this field.

2020 Conference Information


After careful consideration of the health and safety of our members, the difficult financial predicaments many face as a result of COVID19, current travel bans, and the recent uprisings, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s  annual conference in Minneapolis scheduled for November 2020. We appreciate the work of Andy Furco and Amber Cameron in planning the conference and are working with them to reschedule our 20th anniversary conference to be held in Minneapolis during Fall 2021.
