Between September 2002 and July 2007, Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) developed a successful service-learning program thanks to a grant given by the Hong Kong government's University Grants Committee to support the implementation of new teaching initiatives. The grant was originally intended to cover the period between 2002 and 2005; however, due to some cost savings and supplementary university support, the program was maintained for an additional two years. To illustrate the distinctive nature of the program as it unfolded and the lessons learned during its five-year life span, this chapter describes the approach to service-learning that was developed in the HKBU project.
