Daniel J. Bergen, Ph.D.
Office of Community Engagement
The Office of Community Engagement underscores the university’s commitment to community engagement and diversity and inclusion. The office is guided by the definition of community engaged activities as those in which you have significant and direct interaction with the community (local, regional/state, national, global) that will allow for the bi-directional exchange of knowledge and resources in the context of collaboration.
Best practices in cultivating bi-directional partnerships, developing community-based research, and utilizing community-based learning pedagogies will be highlighted at the inaugural Community Engagement Symposium entitled, “Deepening Partnerships in Pursuit of Social Justice.” The Office of Community Engagement, along with the Center for Teaching and Learning—Service Learning Program, Office of Public Affairs, and Office of Research Sponsored Programs, is pleased to co-sponsor these exciting awards in recognition of outstanding contributions to the well-being of the community.
A one page narrative outlining the reasons for applying, or nominating someone, for an award should include a brief description of the project, the impact of the partnership on the organization, community, and/or students served, and the ways in which the project exemplifies a bi-directional partnership. Award winners will be invited to present their work at the 2019 Community Engagement Symposium.
Applications/nominations will be accepted now through October 1, 2019 to be reviewed by members of the Community Engagement Symposium Planning and Advisory Committees. After award decisions are made winners will be notified and invited to attend the award ceremony at the Community Engagement Symposium on November 12, 2019 at Marquette University in the Alumni Memorial Union.
