That Time I Sent My Students To Prison: A Roundtable Discussion of Service-Learning Experience

Abstract: This round table discussion centers on the benefits of service-learning as a tool for improved and enhanced learning outcomes for students and the community. Using successful experiences from MBA students teaching soft skills in a women's prison, we provide exemplar insight for how the topics learned in business education can carry a much deeper meaning for the students and the community. Beyond the traditional student experience, we will also focus on engaging in service-learning for international students in understanding culture and garnering a sense of belongingness. After examples, we will open the discussion to brainstorm best practices to accomplish excellent outcomes for the student and the greater community we serve.
