The Community-Engaged Teaching & Research team supports faculty in two ways. The first is through service-learning (S-L) courses, a form of experiential learning for students and a teaching tool for faculty that combines academics and service to meet educational and community goals. For S-L, students and faculty work with community organizations, nonprofit groups, and government agencies to reinforce and build upon concepts learned in the classroom. Secondly, we support faculty, community partners, and students who research issues related to service and community engagement or who pursue research questions identified by community members or organizations. The goal of supporting this research, which is often done in partnership with community residents or organizations, is to build and disseminate knowledge that advances scholarship and strengthens communities.
