EKU Service Learning & Community-Based Research Faculty and Staff Survey Results

Throughout the 2015-2016 academic year, constituents from across EKU’s academic and administrative units came together to review previous efforts to unite EKU’s academic goals with community-based research and service learning and chart a vision for future efforts. A key step towards institutionalizing sustainable efforts to advance community-based research and service learning was to establish common, operational definitions:

Service learning is defined as a credit-bearing, high-impact teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities.

Community-based research is defined as research undertaken by faculty and/or students in collaboration with community organizations that puts the intellectual and technical resources of the university to work on community-identified needs while enriching the scholarship of the institution.

As part of this work, the Academic Engagement/Service Learning Task Force sought feedback from faculty and staff via an online survey. Click below to view the survey results.
