Engaged Learning Forum Series

The Engaged Learning Forum advances the Center for Social Concerns' approach to practicing Catholic social teaching through community-engaged research, teaching, and learning by gathering learning communities that connect campus and community experts around social concerns. The Engaged Learning Forum gathers all types of engaged scholars to promote all types of engaged scholarship. Forums welcome community partners, students, staff, and faculty. Presentations vary in their appeal from addressing the curious novice to providing advanced learning for people experienced in academic community engagement, such as alums of the Community Engagement Faculty Institute and Community-Based Learning Coordinators. They happen in person and online, wherever the spirit calls us to gather!

Forums take many forms, including, but not limited to: 

  • highlighting a model of exemplary work (e.g., an engaged department or community-engaged course),
  • sharing engaged research/scholarship in progress for feedback, 
  • providing awareness around a developing campus/community issue,
  • launching/celebrating a relevant book through a scholarly talk,
  • showcasing the results of/work in progress funded by Community Impact Grants,
  • analyzing engaged learning experiences, and
  • showcasing a community-based scholar whose work expands local knowledge and/or skills.

Our goal is to provide a regular series of robust conversations that gather interested and active engaged scholars and practitioners!
