At Georgia College, students and faculty are encouraged to partner with community groups to address mutually identified needs and to promote public well-being through teaching, learning, scholarship, and outreach. ENGAGE offers workshops, grants, support for conference travel and opportunities to network with community partners.
ENGAGE supports development of Community-based Engaged Learning (C-bEL) experiences for students in the classroom and beyond. Through C-bEL experiences, Georgia College students address community issues and needs in partnership with community organizations. Learning experiences that meet the following four criteria are encouraged to apply for the C-bEL designation.
- Students integrate theory and practice.
- Students have direct experiences in community settings.
- Students participate in mutually beneficial partnerships with community organizations.
- Students critically reflect on their community-based experiences.
