Graduate Certificate in Community Engagement and Public Scholarship

The Graduate Certificate in Community Engagement and Public Scholarship (CEPS) offers graduate and professional students opportunities to learn how academic community engagement functions, explore pedagogies of community-based learning, envision discipline-specific community-based research, have an impact on communities near and far, and enhance career placement potential. The Certificate requires graduate and professional students to attend workshops that build a knowledge base and skill set around the theoretical, practical, and ethical aspects of community engagement; participate in an immersion, or experiential learning seminar; and demonstrate in any number of ways the integration of community engagement into their research, discipline, and career trajectory.
