Blending theory with practice, service learning encourages students and faculty alike to consider action beyond the classroom; likewise, it ties success to measurables other than grades. But how does it fit in our pedagogies, and where does it place community action among our concerns? More specifically, how do we productively approach issues of sustainability in the humanities? This roundtable discussion invites participants to share their experiences with using service learning to encourage sustainable principles and practices. Participants will present 5-10 minute digital or poster presentations before addressing both the challenges and rewards of teaching service learning in the humanities. By June 15, 2014, please submit a 200-word abstract, brief bio, and A/V requirements to Leigh G. Dillard, University of North Georgia, at
