Civic Engagement

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

 

Community-Engaged Learning Guide for Faculty- A introductory toolkit for faculty interested in incorporating community-engaged learning pedagogy into their courses.
