Faculty and Staff

Service learning and community engagement are more than a means of assisting local communities with their needs and issues. They are about providing students with hands-on experiences in the field to support classroom learning.

The Office of Engagement encourages faculty and staff to incorporate service learning and community engagement into their curriculum and office practices. Below are resources to help understand the concepts behind both methods.

The Center for Advancement of Teaching offers a popular service-learning workshop focusing attention on the topic.

Students often seek faculty guidance regarding volunteer opportunities. The university maintains a Community Partnerships Database of projects that have a strong community-engagement component. Please use this database when helping students identify an opportunity that will result in a positive experience for our student, the organization and our community.
