Community-Engaged Learning Partnership Roundtable

Community-Engaged Learning Partnership Roundtable: What Your Community Partners Want You to Know

Thursday, March 7, 2024, 1:00 – 2:30 pm ET (online)

Join us for a roundtable discussion where representatives from three nonprofit organizations will share their expertise about the nonprofit sector and offer recommendations to university staff and faculty about how to center reciprocity and community-identified priorities in community-engaged learning (CEL) initiatives. Community partners will share the benefits and challenges of CEL for their organizations and offer valuable insights and guidance on how to prepare students for CEL placements to ensure positive and impactful partnerships.
