The Engaged Scholarship Committee Members (2013–2014)
Esther Yang, J Max Bond Center on Design for the Just City
HistorySince 2005, our staff members have formally supported the development and expansion of community-campus partnerships, reaching over 70 faculty members from a variety of departments and programs across the City College campus. The Engaged Scholarship program began by helping faculty members design service-learning courses, and has since expanded to include community-based participatory research and public scholarship activities. In 2013, with the inauguration of the Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership, a committee comprising faculty members from the social sciences formed with the purpose of further expanding engaged-scholarship efforts and faculty involvement across campus.
UPCOMING AND RECENT EVENTS | The NYMAPS Collaborative
