Partnerships: A Journal of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement

Partnerships: A Journal of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement

Partnerships recognizes that successful engaged learning depends on effective partnerships between students, faculty, community agencies, administrators, disciplines, and more. The articles in this peer-reviewed journal focus on how theories and practices can inform and improve such partnerships, connections, and collaborations. Studies co-authored by faculty, students, and/or community partners; or examining practices across disciplines or campuses; or exploring international networks, are all encouraged.


We appreciate the financial support from sponsors to ensure we can publish Partnerships without a subscription fee for scholars working to advance new knowledge, address current issues, and offer critical perspectives surrounding campus-community partnerships.
