Future of Community Engagement in Higher Education
There are by now over fifty academic programs – majors and minors – focused on community engagement, broadly defined, scattered across higher education. The 2010, 2011, and 2012 research institutes brought together scholars, students, and community participants to engage critical questions of what it means to have an “academic home” for community engagement in higher education. Join an ever-growing group of administrators, faculty, researchers, graduate students, and community partners for the next step in growing this academic movement.
