A Service-Learning Honors Program: Forging New Ground in Multidisciplinary Health Education
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International

Title:Associate Professor
There are vast amounts of definitions for the term service learning in the literature stemming from the convoluted history of service and learning in higher education. In the health profession colleges of the United States, the Executive Director of Community Campus Partnerships for Health Dr. Seifer (2000) created a complete succinct definition of service learning, -- “a teaching methodology that combines community service with explicit academic learning objectives, preparation and reflection” (p 2). This definition seems simple in this one sentence format, but there are complex principles behind the meaning. In exploring service learning and honors program in health professions education, the two have a natural fit. However, upon exploration of honors programs in the U.S., there are no service learning honors programs, only honors programs that include service learning in some of the courses offered. Combining the service learning pedagogy with an honors program facilitates building partnerships with diverse communities, fulfilling the mission of most Universities and colleges. Through a new program at a midwestern health professions college, nursing faculty partnered with other health professions faculty, created a Service Learning Honors Program to promote servant leadership in health professions students. A curriculum was specially designed, implemented and evaluated for the honors students who want to learn and serve at the same time. Community-Campus Partnerships for Health. (2000). Information and membership application. [Brochure]. San Francisco: Author.
