We are pleased to announce the publication of the Anchor Institutions Task Force Edition of the Journal of Higher Education Outreach & Engagement. Download flyer.
This volume of the Journal emerges from the growing need to share experiences, challenges, successes and strategies of anchor institution-community partnerships. As interest in the role and value of anchor institutions for community and economic development continues to grow, so does the need to improve and share our knowledge about what it takes to create and sustain collaborative strategies.

The Journal only accepts articles from undergraduate students. The Journal considers three types of articles:
- Articles that discuss the development of a service-learning project and the impact of the project on the community served;
- A case study of a service-learning project;
- A reflection on service-learning and the development of personal leadership.
The new Summer 2011 digital edition of Community Works Journal is now available online. The latest edition features a wide range of articles and essays exploring educational connections to place, service, and sustainable communities. We thank our many contributing educators who continue to generously share their work and experience. Readers will find the new edition available at www.communityworksjournal.org/

As an instructor, this was about pulling back the veil for our students, many of whom had never traveled or thought about the international community. read more
