Start the new year off with a bargain from Indiana Campus Compact Publications - Buy Charting the Course and get the THIN Book for free!
Not familiar with these volumes? Both of the books were written by Indiana Campus Compact Faculty Fellows and provide essential tools for faculty in service-learning. The THIN Book is for faculty new to service-learning and Charting the Course is for more experienced faculty, though both books are indispensable additions to any library.
