Beyond the Classroom:Diversity & Service Learning
           Maria J. Lavooy, University of Central Florida, FL
ABSTRACT  
Two hundred fifty-eight students were recruited from a university and a community 
college. Participants were divided into four groups: University with and without 
service learning; community college with and without service learning.  A 2 X 2 
factorial design revealed that service learning experience influenced attitudes 
about diversity and that the university students held more positive diversity 
attitudes than did community college students.  The results suggest that service 
learning experience influences attitudes about diversity and that students with 
more college experience hold more positive diversity attitudes.
