Modes and Means of Civic Engagement as High Impact Practice
Tuesday Jan 14
1:00 PM - 2:15 PM
Our Turn: Facilitators: Samantha Blevins, Frank Napolitano, Michele Ren, Melinda Wagner, and Erin Webster-Garrett
In recent years, academics like Andrew Delbanco and organizations such as AAC&U have called for a restoration of the centrality of civic learning to the mission of public colleges and universities. As faculty and professional staff currently exploring and implementing aspects of the Scholar-Citizen Initiative, we have designed activities and assignments that encourage students to engage with both on and off-campus communities. This session will address applications of civic engagement and pedagogy in traditional and nontraditional ways through discussions among and between panelists and session attendees.
