Part 1:In this experience, students from MSUs Urban and Regional Institute (URSI) had to partner with those from South Central College (SCC); their goal was to combine their respective talents in order to benefit the surrounding communities. Together, they had undergraduate and graduate members who were preparing for careers in economic and community development, administration, planning, printing/graphics and publishing (Cherrington, 2011, p. 3). At its core, this experience sought to allow students a platform for applying the learned content of their professional interests and acquire new skills as needed within context. They were given the opportunity to practice their research and planning skills and the practical experience of what it means to work for a client and satisfy their expectations. Intrinsic to service-learning is the need for students to reflect before, during and after their experience. Summative reflection was asked for at course start and end. The data refers to these measures as expectation and feedback (Cherrington, 2011). Students completed surveys to help quantify their expectations before starting. How/If this data was used within course design is unclear. They were also given the opportunity to share the value of the experience at the end of the course. The four areas of evaluation were the following: value to communities, value to students, value of the course format and value of the course to the program (Cherrington, 2011, p. 8). Helpful
