In this workshop we posed the question: How to engage with/build partnerships or solidarity with communities in Global Service-Learning? This case study describes SIT Study Abroad programs as a form of community-based education: integrating community members as mentors, educators and part of the local “faculty”. This has profound implications in terms of academic content, knowledge generation, who benefits from the projects and accumulated knowledge gained from field service, and the global citizen responsibilities of the home university in terms of fair intellectual property and labor.
