Fostering Student Leadership in Tackling Community-Based Problems
Abstract:
This paper outlines the integration of a service-learning component into a required major
course for undergraduate Political Science students entitled “Government in Action:
Public Policy.”
It seeks to shed light on the following questions: To what extent is
service-learning valuable in the enhancement of student learning outcomes? Can
students make real connections between content learned in the classroom and experiences
they have with the community partner? Can service-learning in a public policy course
enable students to feel empowered and motivated to become politically active.
Preliminary data suggests that the service-learning course is making inroads to meeting
the challenges of motivating young people to political action.
