In May 2017, Stanford University's Haas Center for Public Service co-sponsored a four-day meeting of scholars and practitioners involved with service-learning and civic engagement in higher education. This meeting became known as "The Gathering: An intergenerational dialogue among service-learning "pioneers" and those who will build and sustain the field in the future." The Gathering was held twenty-two years after a December 1995 Wingspread conference that brought together a group of service-learning "pioneers" to reflect on the field's early history and recommend measures for strengthening policy and practice. The 1995 Wingspread meeting resulted in the publication of the book, "Service-Learning: A Movement's Pioneers Reflect on its Origins, Practice and Future," (Stanton, Giles & Cruz, Jossey-Bass, 1999). As the field has experienced significant growth over the past two decades, the time was right to bring together some of the original pioneers from the 1995 Wingspread conference with a group of younger, "next generation" service-learning and civic engagement scholars. Together, they engaged in a cross-generational dialogue and exploration to reflect on the current state of the service-learning and civic engagement field, now fifty years after its emergence in higher education in the 1960s.
