About the Series

As the only systemwide publication of its kind, this series supports California State University’s (CSU) efforts to provide practical risk mitigation strategies. The series is and continues to be the definition of a collective effort among CSU faculty, campus program staff, risk managers, students, and our organizational partners on creating and developing positive out-of-classroom learning experiences for all CSU students. 

Each volume in the series will be organized around a specific off-campus academic learning experience — service learning, other forms of curricular community-engaged learning, academic internships, field trips, professional field placements. Every volume will provide perspective and guidance from campus program staff, faculty and risk managers, who have worked with colleagues in the Office of the Chancellor to understand risk mitigation issues related to the placement of students and purposeful approaches to addressing them.
