The seminar in Tampa provided a space for thoughtful, authentic, and robust conversations about international academic service learning. I felt challenged and supported by the facilitators and other participants to enter into brave spaces as we collectively critically thought through the various aspects of service learning as a pedagogical tool with students, faculty, staff, and community.L.

The Faculty Development Seminar provided a space for practitioners in the field to collaborate and discuss best practices in regard to the ethical, reciprocal, and meaningful implementation of service-learning.
