Lynn Donahue (Director, Center for Service-Learning and Experiential Learning Support)

Peace and Social Justice

Dr. Lynn Donahue received her Ed.D. in Educational Administration, with a concentration in Higher Education, from the University of Rochester in 2001. Her doctoral work focused on experiential and service-learning. She received her M.Ed. in College Student Personnel in 1992. She has taught at St. John Fisher College since 2000 in the Service Scholars and the Peace and Social Justice Studies Programs and developed the College’s first stand-alone service-learning course called Social Change through Service. Lynn was the Principle Investigator of the 2009-2012 Learn and Serve America Grant through the Corporation for National and Community Service that funded Fisher’s first service-learning initiative and of a 2012-2013 Gannett Foundation Grant. Service-learning and civic engagement became a priority of the College’s 2012-2017 Strategic Plan and Lynn headed the development of a Center for Service-Learning and Civic Development and the 2015 Carnegie Classification for Community Engagement self-study and application process. Prior teaching and counseling work was at the University of Rochester and publications and presentations have focused on student-learning outcomes of leaderless group discussions, learning communities, first-year programs, and service-learning.
