Community Engagement - Faculty Learning Community
The Community Engagement FLC was comprised of 12 faculty who meet monthly for interactive seminars on incorporating community engagement, high impact practices and community-based learning into their classrooms, research, scholarship, and creative activities. Members researched barriers to community engagement and shared best practices and personal experiences in navigating those barriers. Sessions also included a discussion of campus and community resources and opportunities for reflection and support. The FLC members are committed expanding CSUSB’s community engagement by leading the campus in productive community partnerships that are mutually beneficial and encourage co-learning opportunities across their teaching, scholarly, and service work.
The FLC directly addressed Goal 4 of CSUSB’s Strategic Plan and also provides professional development for new engagement opportunities with the quarter to semester conversion.
