Добавить в корзину
Book DescriptionPublic Work and the Academy is the first in a series of joint publications from Campus Compact and Anker Publishing Company.

To embed civic engagement as a more fundamental element of higher education's identity, strong and informed leadership is needed from those who shape our institutions. Public Work and the Academy provides academic leaders with a resource to increase their fluency with and ability to lead service-learning and civic engagement efforts on their campuses, with their peers, and throughout higher education. It is written specifically for academic leaders—chief academic officers, provosts, deans, and division and department chairs—who have significant responsibility for their campus’s academic programs.

Offering a wide variety of topics and case studies, as well as a resources section of helpful publications, web sites, consultants, and networks, this book allows readers to focus on the specific issues and types of institutions most applicable to them.

Organized into two parts, this book offers:
• Five chapters with guidance on using civic engagement to enhance the curriculum, including an examination of the critical leadership role of the academic administrator, strategies for institutionalizing service-learning and civic engagement, service-learning as a means of advancing educational reform, faculty roles and rewards, and strategies for employing service-learning to add depth to the education process
•Eleven case studies highlighting strategies for advancing service-learning and civic engagement drawn from two- and four-year institutions across the United States

Public Work and the Academy encourages both reflection and action on the part of academic leaders (and their faculty) seeking to make service-learning and civic engagement part of their unique campus contexts.
