The title of his paper was Charting the Future of Service-Learning and Community Engagement Research: The Next Ten Years. Michael Patten provided the opening keynote presentation. Present at the conference were several OLPD graduate students (Lisa Burton, Beth Dierker, Yi Cao, Michelle Kuhl) as well as other U of M faculty including Heidi Barajas, Rob Shumer, and Cathy Jordan.
