Civic Engagement

Resoures: For Faculty

Civic engagement in higher education encompasses experiential pedagogies such as community-based learning and community-based research.  The Office of Civic Engagement is intent upon ensuring that the community-engaged projects we recommend to faculty members will result in desired learning outcomes and that such projects elucidate ways in which one’s discipline can be applied to a real-world setting. 

Our Office provides:

  • Information on and connections to social and public service agencies in Central Texas
  • Discipline-specific models of community-based learning and research in higher education
  • Resources and guidance to facilitate the implementation of community-based learning in academic courses
