Call for Proposals: Southwestern PA Regional Network for the Growth of Service-Learning (SPRING) Annual Symposium
Deadline for Proposal Submission is January 5, 2010.
Proposals are now being accepted for the 2011 SPRING Service-Learning Symposium, which will be held on March 26, 2011 at the Community College of Allegheny County - South Campus. This year's theme is "The impact of Community Engagement: from Outputs to Outcomes." We encourage submissions that address this issue in the areas of student, community, or institutional outcomes of service-learning. Please view the Call for Proposals (attached) for more details. Please complete the Online Proposal Submission form to submit a session or poster proposal.
Join colleagues for SPRING’s 4th annual symposium. The annual symposium is held so that those interested in service-learning at the college and university level can come together to share their experiences, learn from one another, and discover potential areas for collaboration. Conference participants will include faculty, administrators, and community service providers who wish to discuss service-learning and the ways it can positively impact our region.
The SPRING service-learning network promotes service-learning among institutions of higher education in the Southwestern Pennsylvania region. It is a regional network of institutions, comprised of colleges, universities, and community organizations.
Service-learning is an educational method, in which students perform meaningful service to meet community-identified needs while reflecting on their actions in a way that allows them to better understand course concepts, the role their discipline plays in society, and their civic identity.
