Within this creative, supportive, and diverse group, participants will:

  • Discover how community engagement can enhance student learning and advance USF’s mission 
  • Learn about and contribute to best practices in developing and maintaining community partnerships 
  • Explore practical tools and frameworks for assessment and reflection 
  • Develop community-engaged project ideas with potential community partners 
Eligible Participants: Novice to experienced community-engaged educators and community partners
