Unique and Distinctive Features
The CSLRC places IUPUI at the forefront of research on service learning, just as it is at the forefront nationally and internationally of service learning practice. The activities of the CSLRC have contributed to research and scholarship by IUPUI, established the CSL’s prominence nationally and internationally for research on service learning and civic engagement, and developed both internal and external partnerships that will continue to contribute to program goals. Through the CSLRC, IUPUI has become known not only as a producer of service learning research, but also as a convener of national and international scholars through symposia, conferences, and workshops. CSLRC holds an annual Research Academy for scholars wanting to pursue research projects on service learning. Additionally, as a result of its spreading reputation in this field, during the period from 2007-2010 the CSLRC has hosted 51 visiting national and international scholars seeking consultations on service learning research and practice. In October, 2010 the CSLRC hosted over 400 scholars from around the world at the 10th annual conference of the International Association for Research on Service Learning and Community Engagement.
