Combining Service and Learning in Higher Education: Evaluation of the Learn and Serve America Higher Education Program

Excerpt

This report presents evaluation results of the Learn and Serve America, Higher Education (LSAHE) initiative, sponsored by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNS). CNS is an independent federal agency that operates AmeriCorps, the National Senior Service Corps, VISTA, ACTION, and Learn and Serve America, among other programs. Learn and Serve America aims to incorporate community service into academic learning in both K-12 education and higher education.

This report addresses impacts of LSAHE on students, communities, and higher education institutions and is based on three years of data collection and observation conducted by RAND from Fiscal 1995 through Fiscal 1997.

This report serves three audiences. First, the findings offer feedback that can help CNS plan for the future of LSAHE. Second, national policymakers may find the results relevant to decisionmaking about future federal support for LSAHE. Third, higher education administrators and practitioners may find the report useful for program and policy development at the campus level.
