Abstract

[This chapter provides a general overview of community engagement and service-learning. The crux of the chapter is to position community engagement and service-learning within the broader discourse of the role of higher education in advancing human development and the common good. The chapter argues that the contribution of higher education to development should extend beyond economic and measurable outcomes by including non-economic and intrinsic values, and by advocating for community engagement and service-learning as strategies for promoting human development and the common good. Such a contribution is threefold: community engagement and service-learning as a tool for (1) advancing social justice; (2) cultivating students and academics’ citizenship; and (3) developing common good professionals. The chapter concludes by introducing the institutional context, the research methodology employed and the study participants.]
