The infographic below was brought to my attention by an Australian education advocate named Tess Pajaron. It presents some of the evidence that students with educational service experiences are more likely to be engaged in their communities after graduation. For me it reinforces the idea that we really need to figure out ways to embed community engagement into the experiences of online students as well. The benefits to the students, and to society are just too great to miss the opportunity.
