Community Engagement Faculty Institute

Taking Education Beyond the Walls of the Classroom

CANCELED

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 2020 Faculty Institute will consider the Center for Social Concerns annual Catholic social tradition theme "Act Justly," confronting racial injustice. "The cumulative effects of personal sins of racism have led to social structures of injustice and violence that makes us all accomplices in racism." - Open Wide Our Hearts, USCCB.
