This chapter is a description of the leadership role played by the International Christian University (ICU) in developing service-learning programs in Asia. It furnishes a brief history of service-learning in the region. The chapter considers how the service-learning curriculum and various service-learning programs have been institutionalized at the ICU and how networking with Asian institutions has been developed. The forms of international service-learning currently operate at ICU and the lessons drawn from the institutionalization of service-learning that may be useful to other institutions are also discussed.

Keywords:   institutionalization of service-learning, internationalism, Christian ethics, liberal arts university education, or non-governmental organization
