Community Partner Perspectives on Service-Learning

11/8/19 1:00-2:30 pm Coe 506

What do we mean when we say that community engagement and service-learning should be done in a reciprocal way? How can we move beyond using other organizations as an off-campus lab for student learning to create a true partnership? This session will address those questions and give participants an opportunity to hear from community partners about their experiences and expectations.  



Opportunities and Challenges of the Carnegie "Community Engaged University" Classification: What UW Can Learn from the University of Kentucky's Successful Application.

In January 2019 UW’s Office of Engagement and Outreach was established to serve as a portal of access to UW for the citizens of Wyoming (and beyond) to coordinate and streamline engagement and outreach efforts in order to achieve enhanced consistency, follow-through, and impact. As part of its strategic plan, Breaking Through: 2017-2022, UW seeks alignment with national engagement and outreach initiatives. As such, UW seeks recognition for its engagement and outreach strengths through national benchmarks, such as the Carnegie Foundation’s Classification for Community Engagement. In her talk, Dr. McCormick will share her experience leading the successful effort in 2015 for the University of Kentucky’s Carnegie Community Engagement Classification that recognizes the university’s commitment to engagement and contribution to their communities.
