This paper will present a brief history of the role of service in higher education, and demonstrate its effectiveness as a full partner to teacher education. We then focus on service-learning in teacher education and how it has enjoyed a strong resurgence in the last 15 years. Finally, we offer a rationale for and a model of service-learning in the northwest region of the US, supported and endorsed by the Northwest Center for Service Learning in Teacher Education.
