Community-Engaged Teaching

Well-designed and implemented community-based courses animate the University’s aim of educating the heart and mind. The Notre Dame mission statement says: “The University seeks to cultivate in its students not only an appreciation for the great achievements of human beings, but also a disciplined sensibility to the poverty, injustice, and oppression that burden the lives of so many. The aim is to create a sense of human solidarity and concern for the common good that will bear fruit as learning becomes service to justice.” Community-based teaching advances that mission in ways that impact students, faculty, and the community partners they engage.

The Center for Social Concerns offers resources and support for faculty interested in community-engaged teaching. Please refer to the guide below for information on preparing, managing, and assessing community-engaged courses.
