Our communities depend on our ability to make the connection between education and democracy. This book can breathe new life into colleges and universities that want to reinforce their public service mission. Jacoby and her colleagues tell us how to do it.–?Dolores E. Cross, president, Chicago State University

Rooted in Dewey, building on the work of the National Society for Experiential Education and its predecessors, this comprehensive volume is useful for experienced practitioners and newcomers alike. Academic deans, department heads, and faculty members will profit mightily from its solid combination of conceptual underpinnings and specific institutional examples.––Arthur W. Chickering, University Professor, George Mason University
