Benefits of Community Engagement
CCSU encourages faculty to address local, national and global social issues in their curriculum and research. The Office of Community Engagement can assist CCSU faculty who are interested in fostering positive social change through service-learning courses and/or community-based research projects.
Community Engagement offers faculty members opportunities to:
Engage students in a different learning style
Add dimensions to classroom discussion
Explore new avenues of research
Engage with service learning, an educational methodology
Faculty members who are interested in developing a community engagement course or program and would like support in identifying a community partner or other resources should contact the Office of Community Engagement.
