Service-Learning/Community-Based Education in the Teaching Portfolio

The Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH) Council of Public Health Practice Coordinators has recently released "Demonstrating Excellence in Practice-Based Teaching for Public Health". The report builds on the framework provided in the previously published "Demonstrating Excellence in Public Health Practice" and provides a description and explanation of terms, guiding principles, and suggestions on methodologies for implementation. The report also provides a framework for evaluating the scholarship and rigor of practice-based teaching for the purposes of faculty promotion and tenure.

The resources below focus primarily on the review, tenure and promotion process in four-year colleges and universities, although many links include general information that is also applicable to two-year colleges. Those interested in resources specifically for community colleges should check with the Community College National Center for Community Engagement or the American Association of Community Colleges.
