Community Engaged Teaching is embraced by schools and departments across Washington University.
Key elements of Community Engaged Teaching include learning activities in a community context, course content and assignments connected to activities in the community, and faculty oversight. It has historically been referred to as service learning and is sometimes called community-based teaching and learning.
To nurture growth in this area, the institute offers training, consultation, partnership development, and funding for faculty who offer Community Engaged Courses.
