Welcome to Mount Royal’s dedicated page for exploring the Research & Scholarship of Community Service Learning (CSL).

Here, you'll find a carefully curated collection of academic publications, research papers, and scholarly articles that delve into various aspects of CSL. This resource is designed for those seeking to comprehend this pedagogical approach from an academic standpoint. Additionally, we highlight published research on CSL conducted by both past and present MRU scholars. The page also features associations and conferences associated with CSL.

While this list is not exhaustive, it aims to support your interest in learning more about the scholarship and research on CSL, especially if it's a new concept for you. It serves to showcase the dynamic work undertaken by MRU Faculty in this field.

Getting Started with CSL

Creating a comprehensive list of all available articles on CSL is impractical. However, the following curated list includes frequently cited works that explore engaging in CSL, measuring success, and addressing the debates and complexities associated with its classroom application.

Is there anything we've overlooked that should be included in this collection? If so, let us know by contacting Christian Cook at clcook1@mtroyal.ca, and we'll gladly add it to the list.
