Quotation Ivanova, Ekaterina. 2016. Implementing Service-Learning in Austria: Volunteering@WU. Universities "Inside" Communities: Interventions and Consequences, Budapest, Ungarn, 18.03-19.03.




This case study (Yin, 1994) aims to show how the predominantly American based concept of service-learning (Frumkin & Jastrzab, 2010) translates into the context of a European university. It starts with a brief literature review on community service. Subsequently, the concept of Volunteering@WU is introduced by discussing its stakeholders interests, aims, methods, output and evaluation procedures. Thereby, the programs advancements within its 6-year-duration are addressed. Currently, the programming faces a great many challenges which are discussed against the background of the future program management in the final section.
