What We’re Reading: New Partnerships Journal Issue

Partnerships: A Journal of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement

Read the latest edition of Partnerships: A Journal of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement, North Carolina Campus Compact’s peer-reviewed, online journal, hosted by the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

This spring 2017 issue of Partnerships offers new perspectives and research on enduring matters for service-learning scholars and practitioners.  Three articles tackle distinct areas of concern: co-curricular service to complement academic service-learning; international service-learning, and, curriculum development using a cross-sector team that does not adhere to traditional hierarchies. In addition, three book reviews confront the “why” of our engaged work even as we regularly strive to disseminate the best possible practices within engaged scholarship.

The journal is available online here.


  • Creating Intentional Paths to Citizenship: An Analysis of Participation in Student Organizations (Julianne Gassman, Jennifer M. Beck, Jonathan Klein)
  • Developing Compassionate and Socially Responsible Global Citizens through Interdisciplinary, International Service-Learning (Sara Fry, Aileen Hale, Kelli Soll, Christopher Bower, Adiya Jaffari)
  • Bringing innovation theory to practice in a program model for collaborative knowledge building: The Curriculum Fellows Program (Laura Barbas-Rhoden, Beate Brunow, Sydnie Mick)

Book Reviews:

  • The political classroom: Evidence and ethics in democratic education (Vincent Russell)
  • Public participation for 21st century democracy (Jeanette Musselwhite)
  • Engaged research and practice: Higher education and the pursuit of the public good (Kathleen E. Edwards)
