Community Engagement Faculty Institute


June 5–7, 2018

The Center for Social Concerns offers the Community Engagement Faculty Institute for all who want to explore or deepen their knowledge, skills, and passion for community-based teaching and research. The agenda for 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 healthcare, immigration, incarceration, and education. The 2018 Faculty Institute will consider the Center for Social Concerns annual theme, "Living the Challenge of Peace."

Past participants testify to the power and inspiration of this unique faculty learning experience.
