As a faculty member there are multiple outlets for you to explore integration of community engagement into your teaching and/or research. Whether you're already working with a community agency and looking to formalize your service into your academic practice or are entering the community for the first time, we are here to support your efforts.
Service-Learning and Your Classroom
Service-learning combines academic study with community engagement to create a mutually beneficial educational experience.
Attending a conference or presenting your community-based research are excellent ways to connect with other engaged faculty, discover new methodologies for community engagement, and receive support for and recognition of your work.
Wether you're interested in serving as a facilitator for the Alternative Break program, sharing your expertise at the annual Global Citizens Leadership Summit, or becoming a faculty mentor through the Civic Engagement Certificate Program, Civic Engagement Initiatives offers a number of opportunities for faculty to get involved in and support co-curricular community engagement efforts.
Student-Faculty research or creative activity offers the opportunity to support students as they explore the connections between community engagement and their discipline.
