What is ENGAGE?
ENGAGE, the Georgia College Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), provides a blueprint for building a culture of engaged learning through the development of structured and assessable Community-based Engaged Learning (C-bEL) experiences that connect students with the liberal arts and the wider community.
This plan is the result of an inclusive and deliberative two-year process that sought input from university constituents.
Four institutional objectives for engage have been identified and are articulated below.
- Build evidence of student learning through direct and indirect measures
- Develop diverse collaborations between community and campus organizations
- Expand opportunities for community-based engaged learning (C-bEL) by constructing experiences for students to synthesize knowledge, skills and dispositions in community settings
- Sustain a culture of engaged learning by planning for a future where engaged learning is woven into every aspect of the student’s experience and Georgia College is an authentic partner with the local and global community
