The Center for Public Service is charged to assist faculty in the development, implementation, and improvement of service learning classes; as well as, consult with faculty, provide resources for course development, and promote the scholarship of engagement. Towards those goals, CPS offers faculty development workshops throughout the academic year.

While most reports of community engagement experiences express positive sentiments related to student learning and community participation, there is very little evidence that the work happening via community/university partnership is doing much to change the conditions that create the need for service in the first place. In 1968, Ivan Illich warned that our good intentions were not enough, so how do we engage ethically and thoughtfully to express our good intentions but also yield meaningful outcomes? This interactive workshop will engage participants in thinking about the possibilities for transformation through community engaged work. Building from a critical service learning framework, we will consider the barriers and opportunities for developing community engagement experiences that can lead to positive outcomes for all stakeholders.
