An opportunity for reflection on the identity and mission of Higher Education.
The book approaches the concept of spirituality from a broad, interreligious perspective and in dialogue with non-religious convictions; with a vision that asks about the meaning of life, about interpersonal and environmental bonds, and about how to develop life projects oriented to the common good. From this perspective, the book offers a comprehensive analysis of the formative impact of solidarity service-learning experiences on students and on the institutional network that articulates the university.
Developed in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, this volume proposes clues and reflections that encompass but also go beyond this situation and allow us to think of Higher Education as a training space that simultaneously embraces « head, heart and hands ».
Its authors have gathered research and experiences from all continents, from the Catholic university world as well as from other faiths and convictions, which deepen service-learning from the ethics of care and fraternity.
