Armando-- Nice to hear that this sort of activity exists elsewhere. Is there
a writeup of your program? An evaluation? Is there ANY published materials
on such programs? We have a strong impression that they greatly benefit
undergraduate education, but we know of no formal evaluations although we
are in the midst of compiling evidence.
 Elaine's note correctly links what we are doing to service learning and
learning. But so far as I can tell, these efforts rarely have an ongoing
immersion in
both academic life and community life where they more or less have to
resolve the
discrepancies that abount across those boundaries.
