Coffee, Cake and Community Engagement: Introduction to Academic-Community Partnerships

On Wednesday, September 6, from 9 to 10 a.m. in Ginter House (901 W. Franklin St.) Room 221, join the Offices of Service-Learning and Community-Engaged Research with the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence (CTLE) for complimentary coffee and a conversation on community engagement as a methodology to enhance faculty teaching, research and scholarship at VCU. Office leadership will also share resources the Division of Community Engagement and CTLE provide to advance development of mutually-beneficial academic-community partnerships.

Service-learning is an intentional teaching strategy that engages students in organized service activities and guided reflection. For more information, visit servicelearning.vcu.edu/.

Community-engaged research (CEnR) is a collaborative process between the researcher and community partner that creates and disseminates knowledge and creative expression with the goal of contributing to the discipline and strengthening the well-being of the community. For more information on CEnR, visit community.vcu.edu/faculty-support-/cenr-support-at-vcu/.
