Poster:

This poster will highlight how a small, private university, located in the urban core of a major metropolitan area, is moving through the stages of developing formal and information service learning collaborations across campus and in the local community with organizations who have limited resources. These partnerships involve faculty, librarians, service learning, community outreach, student life staff across campus and non profit and educational institutions in the community.
