The Center for Civic Engagement will be conducting workshops and trainings on an ongoing basis for Shenandoah University faculty, staff, and community members to infuse civic engagement in classrooms. Community engagement and service-learning engages students in the educational process, using what they learn in the classroom to solve real-life problems. Students become contributing community members through the service they perform. They are encouraged to reflect on the experience by thinking, discussing, and writing about their service. There are a variety of ways to implement this into the curriculum to advance faculty’s learning objectives, students’ learning experiences, and community partners needs.
Through these workshops, participants will:
- Gain strategies for effectively integrating community engagement into their coursework
- Create networks to establish shared community-faculty goals
- Gain knowledge and increase enthusiasm for community engagement as a strategy that leads to a long‐term community commitment
- Support the SU mission and strategic plan to inspire critical, reflective thinking and a commitment to making responsible contributions within a community
- Receive an array of resources in print and accessible via the web
