The Center for Campus Community Engagement (CCCE) invites OHIO faculty and administrators to participate in the Community-Engaged Scholars Training Program this summer or fall.

The program is professional development training focused on community engagement, a high-impact experiential learning practice. Interested faculty and administrators can register online at

Through engaging online modules, rich discussions, and collaboration with experts, community-engaged scholars will develop capacities for community-engaged teaching and scholarly activity that serve to strengthen our democracy and contribute to the public good. Designated courses with community involvement are eligible for the OHIO Honors Program, BRICKS General Education Learning and Practice Credit, and align with the OHIO Guarantee+.

Program participants:

  • Find out how community-engaged service-learning can be incorporated into a course curriculum
  • Design curricular activities and lesson plans for C courses
  • Engage with community partners and experienced faculty to learn community engagement best practices locally and globally.

The Community Engaged Scholars Summer Training will begin May 17, 2022. The Fall Program will begin August 30, 2022. Led by CCCE Associate Professor and Patton College of Education Associate Professor Dr. Mike Kopish, the program will run for 12 to 15 weeks and will include a mid-term and closing seminar.

As part of the Community Engaged Scholars program, participants will develop a C-course proposal, which may be submitted to the CCCE’s C-course review subcommittee for review. For approved C courses, the community-engaged scholar will receive $250.
