Graduate Certificate Course

Community Engagement Scholarship: Integrating Learning and Justice in Higher Education

One-credit graduate course in Spring Semester 2022

CSC 63954 (CRN 32238) — Open to students of all disciplines

Jay Brandenberger 

This interdisciplinary seminar provides an opportunity for graduate students from all colleges to examine topics in the evolving field of community engagement and higher education. What is the public mission of colleges and universities? How may faculty incorporate new paradigms of teaching and research that address challenges of equity and social justice? What promising practices (within and beyond the classroom) integrate ethical responsibility and public scholarship? By what means might we assess the impact of such practices on learners, communities, and fields? How might knowledge of community engagement linked to disciplinary expertise be a faculty career catalyst? Such questions will be addressed through dialogue, experiential opportunities, and analyses in the context of each student's professional trajectory. Resources will be drawn from higher education literature, learning theory, ethics, and discipline-specific writings. Students will have an opportunity to reflect on their sense of public mission and career potentials. Open to doctoral and master's level students. Participation in the course fulfills the requirements for the Graduate Certificate in Community Engagement and Public Scholarship. See Class Search.
