Latest Edition of Available Partnerships
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.
 
The election season reminds us that for our country to operate at its potential, we must build partnerships across partisan lines, between differing world views, and among diverse populations We have plenty of such positive examples, role models, and programs operating in communities across the country as detailed in the articles and book reviews in this issue. In both domestic and international arenas, our featured scholars recognize that dialogue, problem solving, and collaborative goal setting set the stage for ethical and effective high-impact programs.
 The journal is available online here.
