ENGAGED SCHOLARS INITIATIVE

September 11 @ 8:00 am - October 12 @ 5:00 pm

In 2008, Campus Compact convened an intentionally diverse group of ten engaged faculty and staff who named themselves the Engaged Scholars for New Perspectives in Higher Education. Over the last decade, they have published and presented collaboratively and taken on new leadership roles in their institutions and the field. Many consider the group’s initial retreat a formative experience: in their words, it “was a catalyst for developing my scholar practitioner identity,” “one of the most joyful experiences of my career,” and a central element of “my story of leadership development and what keeps me grounded in the work I do.” In order to offer this kind of opportunity for more emerging leaders across the United States, Campus Compact is piloting a regional cohort in the Eastern Region this year, with an eye towards future replication in other regions. The Campus Compacts of the Eastern Region, in partnership with the Swearer Center at Brown University, are accepting nominations for up to ten engaged…

Placed-Based Community Engagement in Higher Education

January 24, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Widely known through the work of the Harlem Children’s Zone and the federal government’s Promise and Choice Neighborhood programs, geographically specific community engagement initiatives have the potential to positively address the challenges of inequity and injustice within our communities.

Integrating Civic Outcomes Across a Major or Program: Curriculum design and mapping for civic learning

February 19, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Zoom,

In this webinar attendees will focus on identifying, articulating, and mapping civic learning and developmental outcomes (civic identity, civic-mindedness, civic agency, civic literacy, intercultural competency, etc.) for their program of study or major. A curriculum map is a tool to assure the content of a program of study or major is being presented and assessed, all content is linked to learning goals (e.g. institutional, accreditor), and that content is sufficient to reach learning and developmental goals. A curriculum mapping exercise can show gaps in learning, overlaps in content, and indicate where weaknesses or opportunities can and should be addressed. Anne Weiss has over seven years of experience in leading collaborative assessment, evaluation, and inquiry projects focused on resolving complex problems within higher education institutions- especially as it relates to civic or community engagement.
