Critical service-learning is an approach to civic learning that is attentive to social change, works to redistribute power, and strives to develop authentic relationships. But does participation in service-learning contribute to the long-term greater good, even after graduation?

On Friday, March 29th, service-learning alumni will offer their reflections on:

-the impact service-learning has had on their life choices, future education, career shifts, and leadership in civic engagement since graduation
-what worked for them in their service-learning courses at Duke
-how faculty can design courses that will have a lifelong impact on a students' civic identity
-how undergraduate students can discuss service-learning experiences when interviewing for jobs post-graduation
-There will be plenty of opportunities for questions!

Alumni will answer questions and talk with current students about how service-learning has made an impact on their life choices, future education, career shifts, and continued leadership in civic engagement. They will also discuss how to incorporate undergraduate service-learning experiences into job interviews and career pathways within the public and private sectors. Monuts, coffee, and tea provided.
