St. John’s will be co-hosting with New York Campus Compact an Institute on Academic Service, encompassing all levels of education from K through Higher Education.  Please join us for this unparalleled program.  You will have an opportunity to participate in small group discussions and hands on course design while collaborating and networking with educators from K-8, High School and Higher Education Institutions in New York Campus Compact.  We will create special strands within the day for K-8, High School and Higher Education Institutions.        

Dr. Edward Zlotkowski, Professor of English at Bentley University and academic service-learning pioneer, will facilitate a one day institute for faculty who want to explore and/or deepen their understanding and practice of academic service-learning.  For those of you who are not familiar with Dr. Edward Zlotkowski, he is a well-known author and respected authority both nationally and internationally in the field of service-learning.  Co-facilitating the program will be Dr. Julie H. Carter, Associate Professor at St. John’s University and coordinator of adolescent education in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction.  Prior to coming to St. John’s Dr. Carter worked at the National Center for Service Learning helping teachers to integrate service learning into K-12 classrooms.
