Civic and Community Engagement Across the Disciplines

Civic and Community Engagement Across the Disciplines showcases  practices, programs and strategies that address questions that impact the intentional integration of community engagement into academic programs of study.  Some of the areas that CCeXD presenters may address include:

  • Disciplinary perspectives and conceptual models for community engagement [e.g. expert-centered, justice-oriented, community-driven, ethic of care];
  • Innovative and effective approaches to community-engaged course/program design (domestic or international, undergraduate or graduate);
  • Community-engagement with special populations [first generation students, vulnerable populations];
  • Blended Learning [service learning + other teaching methods/modalities];
  • Student and/or community outcomes;
  • Learning Design and assessment [civic learning, intercultural/multicultural competence, civic/moral identity development, critical thinking and integrative reasoning]
  • Program/Department models and innovations that:
    • foster reciprocal and transformative community-university partnerships;
    • tackle workload issues associated with the use of community-engaged teaching and learning practices;
    • enhance the quality of collaboration and trust among universities and communities;
    • address administrative and safety issues;
    • encourage longitudinal scaffolding of civic learning and experiences in the curriculum.
  • Goals

    To this end, CCeXD is intended to:

    • Create networking and learning opportunities for IUPUI faculty, staff, students and partners;
    • Showcase emerging practices and programs at IUPUI that:
      • align with our campus' strategic goals for teaching, learning and community engagement and/or
      • address critical topics in integrating community engagement into the disciplines;
    • Increase awareness of and engagement with the tenets of community-engaged teaching and learning among IUPUI faculty, administrators and staff;
    • Nurture interdisciplinary/transdisciplinary approaches to teaching and learning;
    • Encourage local dissemination opportunities based on the principles of good practice for community-university partnerships [i.e. presentations that validate and encourage students, staff, and community partners as co-educators and co-facilitators of learning alongside faculty].
