The IACC Research Fellows Program has allowed me the chance to gain a deeper understanding of service-learning pedagogy and research. During the Pen-to-Paper writing workshop, I was able to pitch ideas to journal editors and received personal mentorship. It is amazing to be supported by such passionate and knowledgeable service-learning experts.
