Learn more about our work in service learning

Explore our past and current projects on transnational service learning. Our research examines the roles of hosts, students and program developers in service learning. We consider topics such as disability and disablement and building relational solidarity in these spaces. 

In this paper, we are concerned with the ways hosts are often excluded from scholarship and programming of service learning.

This project is a qualitative inquiry into transnational relational experiences of solidarity. It asks people from the North how they have made meaning of their experiences with those in the South.
