Participants Needed for Service-Learning Research Study
Ms. Ruth Starr, a PhD researcher, is conducting a mixed methods cross-discipline research study about the role service-learning activities play in the transition from college to work. College graduates are facing increased levels of competition in the workforce. This study will assess how service-learning activities prepare the learner for a career and influence a student's cultural perceptions, attitudes toward community service, competence in doing work tasks, and confidence in achieving personal goals after graduation.
Do you currently have a list of service-learning course graduates that have graduated in 2010 or prior years when your school offered service-learning courses? If so, Ruth Starr would like to talk with you about participating in the study by distributing the link to the anonymous online survey to service-learning course graduates.
Ruth's research is based on the historical data collected in prior research sponsored by the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) and would like Campus Compact member schools to also participate. Widener University has agreed to be a research site and has been distributing the online survey link through an email message invitation through the Widener University's Alumni Association. This research project has IRB approval through the Widener Service-Learning Coordinator and Provost. Please contact Ruth Starr at email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you or your school can participate in the research study.
