Community Engagement Faculty Institute

Taking Education Beyond the Walls of the Classroom

June 4–6, 2019

The Center for Social Concerns offers the Community Engagement Faculty Institute (CEFI) for all who want to explore or deepen their knowledge, skills, and passion for community-engaged teaching and research. This dynamic Community Engagement Faculty Institute is imbued with engaged learning, mixing lectures by faculty and community experts on the theory and practice of community engagement with immersion into the local community to learn with community partners. We address a range of social concerns, such as health care, immigration, incarceration, and education.

The 2019 Faculty Institute will consider the Center for Social Concerns annual Catholic social tradition theme "Moving Margins: Living the Option for the Poor," which challenges us first to engage the poorest and most vulnerable communities.
