Faculty Testimony

Service Learning Faculty at Eastern

“Community-based research provides opportunities to examine current societal issues through nontraditional research methods. By working with a faculty member on a community-based research project, students gain invaluable practical experience and are able to demonstrate their skills through conference presentations and publications. For students, every hour in the community is worth 20 in the classroom.”
