Abstract/Description: Service-learning is neither field education nor volunteerism. Rather, it is a pedagogical approach designed to reinforce classroom instruction with concurrent service activities occurring in the local community; this service driven by community-identified needs. Service-learning supports social work values, yet the profession has been slow to embrace it in social work education. This paper reports results of a national survey examining the use of service-learning among CSWE-accredited baccalaureate programs. The majority of respondents report service-learning is a required component of at least one course (generally an introductory or practice-based course), and has been incorporated into their programs for over a decade. Results also suggest some programs may not implement service-learning appropriately as it remains undifferentiated from volunteerism or field education.
