The WVU Center for Community Engagement (CCE) provides one-on-one or departmental
course support in developing your Service-Learning course. With extensive knowledge
of our community and of academic learning outcomes, the CCE can help
you tailor your course to meet both the needs of the community and the needs of
your students through meaningful experiential learning opportunities.
Community Engaged Research and Scholarship
"Community Engagement describes the collaboration between institutions of higher education and their larger communities (local, regional/state, national and global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity.
The purpose of community engagement is the partnership of college and university knowledge and resources with those of the public and private sectors to enrich scholarship, research and creative activity; enhance curriculum, teaching and learning; prepare educated, engaged citizens; strengthen democratic values and civic responsibility; address critical societal issues; and contribute to the public good." -Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching
Service learning is just one method of community engaged scholarship.
