Abstract

This constructivist case study investigated student understanding about HIV/AIDS in the context of a service-learning partnership between a university class and local AIDS service organization. Analysis of data garnered from four organization staff, three teaching staff, and eight undergraduates suggests that interaction with clients and staff caused students to examine how stereotypes shaped their attitudes about people with HIV/AIDS and to rethink their behavioral choices.
