It is a field now characterized by increasing methodological and theoreticalsophistication, vast quantitative and qualitative studies, interdisciplinary research, myriadsubjects, and the internationalization of scholarship.The papers in this volume were selected from nearly 100 presentations made atthe 2009 annual conference of the International Association for Research on ServiceLearning and Community Engagement held in Ottawa, Canada's national capital. Theconference theme, Research for What? emphasized fundamental questions, namely: towhat extent is rigorous research uncovering best practices in, and demonstrating the positive results of, service-learning onteaching, learning and building better communities?
