Read Description

April 12 @ 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm, April 13 @ 8:30 AM-3:00 pm

This day and a half workshop for faculty and community partners investigate components and practices of quality and rigorous community engagement in ACE courses. The workshop will be facilitated by Emily Shields (Executive Director, Iowa Campus Compact) and Sinda Nichols (Assistant Director, MN Campus Compact). The workshop also provides the opportunity for faculty to connect directly with community partners to co-create courses and/or research projects. While the focus is on ACE/service-learning courses, the principles can be applied to other civically-oriented experiential learning, such as internships and undergraduate research. Faculty and community partner honorariums will be available to honor your time and investment in this work.

The Engaged Faculty Institute is supported by the Academic Civic Engagement program, Center for Innovation in the Liberal Arts, and the Interdisciplinary and General Studies Division.
