How The Program Works
Looking for information about the kinds of events offered by CCP? Our faculty events cover a variety of topics and bring together instructors who teach, or are interested in teaching, community-engaged learning courses. To stay up to date on upcoming events, please register for our faculty newsletter.
Our recurring event offerings include:
CEL Course Development Workshop
A workshop that covers the fundamentals of community-engaged learning pedagogy and practice. Participants typically bring a syllabus they are interested in re-designing, or an idea for a course they would like to create. Together we work on designing a successful community-engaged learning course. This workshop is open to all interested faculty.
Critical Community-Engaged Learning Reading Group
Join faculty in a discussion of recent scholarship in the field of community-engaged learning. This group meets to discuss a reading selected by a group member. The group is open to new and experienced instructors of community-engaged learning courses.
Roundtables and Webinars on Selected Topics
Join faculty for a presentation and discussion with invited guests around topics related to community-engaged learning.
Past roundtable topics include:
- Innovative Approaches to Assessment in Community Engaged Learning

Faculty Institute on Community-Engaged Learning
The Faculty Institute on Community-Engaged Learning is an annual meeting where faculty from across the University come together to share best practices in community-engaged learning (CEL). Experienced CEL instructors and those new to CEL hear from invited guests, participate in workshops and panel discussions, and build a CEL community of practice at the University.
