Envisioning a system of higher education that meets community needs by cultivating in students a commitment to civic engagement, the authors of Service-Learning Code of Ethics equip readers with the necessary insight and tools for navigating the ethical dilemmas that arise during the service-learning process. Designed for administrators, instructors, and students, the book is intended to stimulate meaningful reflection, class discussion, and values exploration. Its aim is to promote the practice of service-learning by underscoring its benefits to society and student development. The authors offer a basic road map for practicing service-learning that includes* An overview of service-learning and its role in American higher education* A review of existing professional codes and ethics* A proposed code of ethics and model for ethical decision-making* Hypothetical dilemmas and question sets that help guide the reader to an understanding of the broader issues involved in service-learning* Templates to measure progress in adhering to the service-learning code* A general guideline for risk-management in service-learning While the stated mission of many colleges and universities is to teach the democratic ideals of the nation, build moral character, and cultivate an educated and engaged citizenry, most fall short of incorporating this goal into their curricular programs. By reflecting critically upon service-learning experiences, Service-Learning Code of Ethics makes a constructive argument for change.
