In 2009, Duke University's Program in Education became the home of the International Center for Service-Learning in Teacher Education (ICSLTE). ICSLTE is a result of two 1997 grants from the Corporation for National Service, one to the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) and one to Dr. Rahima Wade of the University of Iowa. Both grants developed national partnerships that merged together in 2000 to form the National Service-Learning in Teacher Education Partnership (NSLTEP). This group of national partners created ISCLTE in 2003. ICSLTE was housed at Clemson University until its move to Duke.
Duke Service-Learning faculty director, David Malone, serves as the ICSLTE co-director along with Program in Education faculty member Jan Riggsbee. Faculty consultant Amy Anderson serves as the Center’s executive administrative director.
