Community-Engaged Learning and Pedagogy: Community Partners and Community Impact

Pedagogical and applied research related to developing and implementing community-engaged learning in new or established classes.


Best and ethical practices for establishing and cultivating university-community partnerships are clear about the fact that any partnership, no matter the size or scope, must be an a fully equitable partnership. That is, a partnership between university and community entities must incorporate knowledge of university and community members, recognize a community partner's resources and capacity, establish clear roles and participation for all parties, and consider how and whether a project will effect change for the community partner. 

Partnerships begin with selecting a partner and end with the partnerships impact on the community organization and its constituents. The readings included here detail the best practices of how to incorporate a community organization in course and project design.
