The focus in this project has been on the extent of explicit commitment of teacher educators in universities to community service and community partnerships that find expression in the content and processes of programs. Such program expression reflects the reciprocity and mutual benefit of engagement with community in teacher education, albeit at a range of levels from superficial and isolated to complex and integrated. In teacher education, the focus is on community as a context for learning and in that sense the community provides significant benefit to the university and its students.
