Abstract

In an effort to expand learning beyond the classroom, a Victimology course used service learning and a Victims’ Awareness Fair to engage students in volunteering with victim-related agencies and reaching out to the community. This paper discusses the details of the service learning requirement and the Victims’ Awareness Fair, and offers a number of suggestions for improving these types of activities in the future.
