IU News Room, April 15, 2010 - Indiana University Bloomington will hold its Summer Service-Learning Institute on May 12-14.

As a side note, Nelda Brown and I attended the National AfterSchool Association Convention this week, and there were so many similarities to the service-learning field, including our struggles and strengths. It should be interesting, as we go forward, to see where we will be able to fold in the afterschool work into service-learning and vice versa.
