AUTHORS: Peggy Minnis, Pace University

ABSTRACT: Pace University requires each student to complete a service learning course. Over the years, GIS has served as such a course, sending students into communities and organizations to determine how GIS can help provide information and maps for making decisions. Along the way, students learn the complexity and difficulty in dealing with volunteer or community organizations and in getting accurate or useful information. Several class projects will be used as examples. Projects that were undertaken and abandoned will be reviewed, with possible reasons why they could not be completed by an undergraduate class.
