Taking Education Beyond the Walls of the Classroom

June 4–6, 2019

The Center for Social Concerns offers the Community Engagement Faculty Institute for all who want to explore or deepen their knowledge, skills, and passion for community-based teaching and research. The agenda for this dynamic Community Engagement Faculty Institute is imbued with engaged learning, mixing lectures by faculty and community experts on the theory and practice of community engagement with immersion into the local community to learn with community partners. We address a range of social concerns, such as poverty, violence, oppression by unjust systems and structures, immigration, incarceration, and education. The 2019 Faculty Institute will consider the Center for Social Concerns annual theme, “Moving Margins: Living the Option for the Poor.”

Past participants testify to the power and inspiration of this unique faculty learning experience.
