Research output: Contribution to conferencePresentationResearchpeer-review


Service-learning has been growing in popularity and application in management courses for 15+years. Although it is not a new teaching tool, we believe that there are still numerous challenges faced when partnering with government organizations. With our 20+ years of service-learning experience, government partnerships remain operationally difficult. In this interactive session, we present tools for effective government partnering – tip sheets written by government partners, legal documents, contracts, rubrics, and overviews of project goals. Having shared our documents, we will engage participants in an open and honest discussion of the unique challenges and benefits of partnering with government organizations.
