Higher Education for the Public Good
In his recent Strategic Vision for the University of Mary Washington, President Troy Paino highlighted our support for community and civic engagement, drawn from our long history as a public liberal arts and sciences institution.
University of Mary Washington has recently taken many steps to realize this strategic vision, including creating a Civic Action Plan, creating the Center for Community Engagement, and enhancing our resources for faculty community-engagement activities.
Resources to Support Community Engagement
The Center for Community Engagement seeks to support faculty community engagement activities through a series of programs, activities, and resources:
- Resources for Teaching: Learn more about incorporating CE work in your classes, about the CE designation, and view a list of CE designated courses.
- Resources for Research: Learn more about best practices for CE research, finding community partners, and how to share your experience.
- Faculty Recognition and Support: Learn more about how to talk about your community engagement work on your FAAR and in promotion and tenure files.
- Network and Share your Work: Learn more about opportunities to share your community engagement work at national and regional conferences and in academic journals.
