|Information sought about faculty, student engagement|
Collecting information about faculty and student work with community partners is an important part of continuing UND’s designation as an “engaged campus” by the Carnegie Foundation. UND was selected for the new category in 2006.
To make data collection easier for academic departments, a team from the UND Center for Community Engagement will be contacting departments to assist in gathering information about service learning, public scholarship, and their community partnerships. Team members include two administrative interns working on the project through the President’s Leadership Program, Jane Sykes Wilson, education abroad advisor in the International Center, and Jared Keengwe, assistant professor of teaching and learning. Kevin Kainulainen and Fayme Stringer, Center AmeriCorps*VISTA members, are also on the team.
We appreciate your assistance with collection of this information. We also are happy to provide information and resources about service learning and public scholarship. Faculty who are interested in being on the e-mail lists of the Service Learning Interest Group and Public Scholarship Interest Group and who are not already enrolled are encouraged to let us know.
