Community & Friends

Curriculum Development

  • Campus Compact Chief Academic Officers’ Colloquium on Engaged Teaching and Learning (2002)
    • Excerpt: In a framework of civic education, higher education would address the questions: To what extend does our institution create and sustain long-term partnerships with communities and civic bodies? To what extent can our civic partners point to long-term, positive experiences with our campus? Are these partnerships framed in ways which reflect the college or university’s commitments to and self-interests in community building and civic vitality, that integrate community experience into the learning of students and the professional service opportunities for staff, and that fully understand and appreciate the public dimensions of scholarly work?
