The Edward Ginsberg Center for Community Service and Learning

There has been growing scholarship on community engagement that is shaping the field and can help inform your community-engaged teaching, research and service. These publications are also a great venue for sharing what you have learned. To work with a Ginsberg staff member on incorporating these resources in your work, please contact us at Ginsberg.engage@umich.edu

 

Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning
Since 1994, the Ginsberg Center has published the Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning, which is widely recognized as a leader in the field of community engaged scholarship. Current and past issues of the journal are available online.

We have also compiled a bibliography of often-cited articles from the journal that have significantly influenced community engagement in higher education. 


Library Guide
We have partnered with the University Library to create a research guide that includes key books and resources related to community-engaged teaching and research. 


Community Engagement Journals
There are numerous journals that focus on community engagement primarily, and even more that include community engagmeent, but not as a primary focus.  These journals can not only inform your teaching and research, but are great venues for publshing your own community-engaged scholarship.

We have grouped a truncated list of journals into 3 main categories. Please contact us at Ginsberg.Engage@umich.edu if you would like the comprehensive list. : 

General Focus

Topical Focus

Undergraduate Focus

These journals specifically allow undergraduates to share their experiences and learning from community engagement.
