The "Horizons" project features model programs, national data collection and dissemination, and an information clearinghouse. In addition, "Horizons" provides professional development opportunities and technical assistance through regional workshops on service learning and civic responsibility, chief academic officer summits, mentoring, presentations, publications, a Web site, and a consultant referral service. Eight colleges (Chattahoochee Technical College, GA; Hudson Valley Community College, NY; Kingwood College, TX; Northern New Mexico Community College, NM; Northwest Indian College, WA; Prince George's Community College, MD; Sinclair Community College, OH; and Western Wisconsin Technical College, WI) were selected in a national grant competition in 2003 to become "Horizons" Mentee Colleges. They represent rural, suburban, and urban areas; include tribal and Hispanic-serving institutions; and have student populations as small as 600 and as large as 25,000. Working in the areas of education, public safety, human needs, and the environment, the "Horizons" Mentee Colleges are developing service learning programs that can be replicated at other institutions. Each college works with a service learning advisory committee comprising students, faculty, administrators, staff, and community partners. For each of the eight "Horizons" Mentee Colleges, this document provides project highlights and contact information. Information about the "Horizons" Mentor Team and the "Horizons" Mentee Primary Community Partners is also included, followed by a list of select Web resources.
