St. John’s University and New York Campus Compact will co-host an Institute on Academic Service-Learning on June 15, 2017. The institute will be facilitated by Dr. Edward Zlotkowski, former Professor of English at Bentley University and academic service-learning pioneer.

The program is designed for faculty who want to explore and/or deepen their understanding and practice of academic service-learning. Dr. Zlotkowski founded the Bentley Service-Learning Center in 1990. The Center provides universitywide support for all undergraduate departments and has aided a quarter of the university’s full-time faculty and thousands of students in participating in service-learning projects. He has led service-learning workshops for international, national, and regional organizations as well as for several hundred individual campuses, and writes and speaks extensively on a wide range of topics relating to service-learning and civic engagement.

The Institute is open to all full-time and part-time faculty and administrators who teach. Your attendance at this program will result in certification in academic service-learning.
