Abstract

This paper aims to explore the dynamics of Service Learning Malaysia (SULAM) initiatives and their impact on quadruple helix stakeholders. A qualitative approach was employed which involved interviews with 11 lecturers and 16 community participants and thematic analysis to understand how SULAM initiatives impact the stakeholders within the SULAM ecosystem. Findings indicated that the nexus of service learning initiatives and the stakeholders includes five main themes: University-Industry Collaboration, Government-Academia Partnership, Community Engagement and Empowerment, Skill Development and Human Capital, and Socioeconomic Impact. The findings also highlighted the essentiality of equal partnership among the stakeholders to ensure sustainability of SULAM initiatives.
