The Center for Community Engagement & Service offers a series of regular community-based learning events to foster the community of educators and learners here on campus and within the broader community.
Service-Learning and Civic Engagement Conference
April 2nd, 2016
The regional Service-Learning and Civic Engagement Conference (SLCE) will be held at the Universities at Shady Grove in Rockville, MD.
This is always a great event attended by 300 faculty, staff, students and community partners from the DC-Metro area.
Each May the Center for Community Engagement & Service organizes a 2-day Faculty Institute. This is an opportunity for faculty to come together across disciplines around the common interest of community-based learning as a teaching pedagogy.
(there will be no 2014 Symposium in honor of AU hosting the Maryland-DC Campus Compact Regional Service-Learning and Civic Engagement Conference in March)
The CBL Symposium draws together faculty, students, and community partners to share their experiences, highlight best practices and increase the conversation around community-based learning here at AU.
