The Bay Area Service-Learning Network meeting will take place on Wednesday, February 24, from 10am-2:30pm.  Perla Barrientos, Associate Director/Director of Community Service Learning at the Institute for Civic and Community Engagement at San Francisco State University  (barrient@sfsu.edu will host.  (See below for directions.)

While initially we had asked folks to make an effort to bring a community partner, the agenda has changed due to (in all honesty) the challenges in recruiting facilitators.  (Thank you to new member Ann Wettrich, Co-Director of the CA College of the Arts Center for Art & Public Life who has agreed to facilitate a portion of the day!)  The agenda below has changed somewhat reflecting this; rather than spend the entire day on assessing community impact, we also will have a dialogue on how we collect campus-wide data; both topics will include uses of technology.  Given this change, it is up to you whether or not you would still like to bring a community partner to this meeting.
