Community-engaged learning to build on colleges’ strengths
By Ashlee McGandy
Five years into its mission to make community-engaged learning a hallmark of the Cornell undergraduate experience – and building on the passion and commitment of faculty, staff and students across the university – the Office of Engagement Initiatives (OEI) is launching an engaged college initiative.
Beginning this fall, OEI is collaborating with individual colleges and schools that want to make community-engaged learning (CEL) a central part of their curricular, co-curricular and research programs. Through the initiative, OEI will provide three-year foundation-building block grants, consultations and training and build long-term partnerships with college leadership teams.
