Community-Campus Network (CCN)
The Community-Campus Network is a place for community-engaged faculty and staff to come together to share skills and perspectives. This brown bag discussion series meets the first Wednesday of each month from 12:00-1:30. Questions the Network will discuss this year include: How do we at the university avoid undermining community agency and authority? How do we go from a personal relationship to an institutionalized partnership, without losing the spirit of the relationship? How can we examine the underlying assumptions of our academic disciplines, and how they might affect our engaged research? For more information, see the Office for Public Engagement calendar. Contact Sara Axtell at email@example.com for additional information.
Community Service-Learning Consultations
Staff in the Community Service-Learning Center consult with faculty interested in integrating service-learning into their courses on an ongoing basis throughout the year. In 2011-2012, we will be offering opportunities to come together with other colleagues to discuss syllabus design and crafting effective assignments for service-learning. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information or to request a consultation.
