The Alliance for Community Engagement Program is a yearlong series of workshops and meetings directed at developing and teaching a service learning class. This involves serving the community in a way that achieves goals and objectives, while providing students with a unique experience to learn, serve, and teach as they examine society at a primary level. Nystrom describes the process of adding a service learning component to one college class--"History 3332, US Social and Cultural History from 1865 to the Present"--and the interviews students conducted for this class.
