The institutionalisation of service-learning in higher education is a complex process that is shaped by the confluence of a variety of factors. Based on current discussions in the literature and findings from a three-year exploratory study, this article discusses the central issues and critical leverage points for institutionalising service-learning in higher education. A conceptual framework that identifies five key dimensions of service-learning institutionalisation is presented.
