During the past decade students have shown increasing interest in volunteering, community service, and community-based civic renewal projects, prompting many colleges and universities to create new programs that provide these kinds of opportunities. Some require participation in these programs for graduation; others incorporate civic engagement activities into core courses. Although civic engagement is becoming better integrated into higher education, it is not yet generally seen as a way to develop and redefine youth leadership. The essays in this volume address the idea of leadership education through civic engagement. They delineate a new approach to leadership education that reflects important cultural trends driven by technology, globalization, and demographic shifts; look at some of the best leadership education programs nationwide; and offer "next steps" on how to transform higher education more broadly.
