Faculty Engagement Objectives
Our Faculty Engagement initiatives provides the infrastructure and resources to institutionalize and support Community Based Learning and Community Based Research by:
- identifying and maintaining relationships with community partners
- offering faculty resources for course planning, professional development, and connecting with community partners
- providing student-led projects with support and leadership development
- acting as communication nexus for community partners, faculty, staff and students engaged in community based learning
Community Based Learning (CBL) and Community Based Research (CBR) at NDNU are designed to enhance student learning through connecting academic learning and community engagement. It does so by creating partnerships in the community with organizations that help students achieve learning goals while simultaneously affecting positive change in that community. Our Faculty Engagement services provide professional development and mentorship to faculty and community members as they work together to develop CBL/CBR courses, with the goal of creating a community of social justice activists.
