Below are some helpful resources for students, faculty, and community partners who want to grow in their understanding and practice of service-learning and civic engagement. 

Tools of Engagement

A cross unit team within University Outreach and Engagement (UOE) at Michigan State University set out to develop student learning modules on university outreach and engagement. There was considerable interest in developing a series of learning modules on engagement competencies to introduce students to engagement concepts and help instill competent practices needed for community engagement.

Reflection Circles

*We are currently recruiting community volunteers to facilitate Reflection Circle sessions in Fall 2015! Reflection Circles are discussion groups for students serving the greater Lansing community through a service-learning class. Instead of writing a reflection paper, students instead come to Reflection Circles, which support them in linking their service-learning experiences to personal growth, academic learning, and meeting their future professional goals. 

John Duley Archives

These archived publications represent over 50 years of John Duley's work in the fields of community engagement, experiential education, and service-learning. We hope they will serve as a resource for all who are interested in community engaged scholarship.
