Higher Education

​Colleges and universities are strengthening their efforts to help students become engaged, effective citizens. From community colleges to four-year universities, civic reflection has proved to be a powerful tool for achieving civic goals on the college campus and building the capacity of faculty, students, and staff. Civic reflection can be utilized across a wide range of areas in higher education, including academic service learning, community engagement, student development, and faculty and staff professional development.

Benefits

  • Increased capacity for dialogue across difference at colleges and universities
  • Improved relationships between and among faculty, students, staff, and community members
  • Deepened student and staff commitment to service and civic engagement, both on-campus and off

This was a great workshop—I am sad for it to end! I’m really taking back some new ideas for my classroom and staff on using names, planning discussions, using openings and closings, etc.

I think that knowing there are people out there in the community that care about education like I do was most worthwhile & learning how many people are really different but are happy trying to make change.
