Community Engagement Faculty Institute

Taking Education Beyond the Walls of the Classroom

2021 Will Be Happening - details to be determined as we navigate through a time of COVID-19

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.

Continue to check back here for information about CEFI 2021. Some or all of the details below might look different as we wait to see what restrictions will be in place during the summer of 2021.

Eligibility does not extend to participants from other universities or organizations.
