Robert L. Sigmon Service-Learning Award

Presented during the PACE Conference since 2006, the Robert L. Sigmon Service-Learning Award recognizes one faculty member in the NC Campus Compact network who has made significant contributions toward furthering the practice of service-learning. The award is named in honor of Robert L. Sigmon (bio), service-learning pioneer and North Carolina native. In 2009, Mr. Sigmon donated his personal library and research to Elon University to create the Robert L. Sigmon Service-Learning Collection.  In 2016, the archive was digitized and is now available online!
