Resoures: For Faculty
Civic engagement in higher education encompasses experiential pedagogies such as community-based learning and community-based research. The Office of Civic Engagement is intent upon ensuring that the community-engaged projects we recommend to faculty members will result in desired learning outcomes and that such projects elucidate ways in which one’s discipline can be applied to a real-world setting.
Our Office provides:
- Information on and connections to social and public service agencies in Central Texas
- Discipline-specific models of community-based learning and research in higher education
- Resources and guidance to facilitate the implementation of community-based learning in academic courses
