Abstract/Description

Community engagement is at the heart of UD’s mission and vision, and the Marianist Charism is foundational to creating change in our society. The Fitz Center for Leadership in Community has decades of experience working alongside our community on a variety of community-identified challenges and provides the resources and relationship building necessary for anchor institutions to be deeply and civically engaged in their communities. Through ongoing, mutually beneficial and reciprocal partnerships, the Fitz Center connects faculty and students to organizations and people working on the same issues they're learning about in the classroom, bringing the content to life in the real world. Join the Fitz Center for Leadership in Community team for an interactive workshop that will guide faculty and staff through foundational principles, assessment models, and concrete takeaways for how to bridge classroom and community as we prepare our students to be leaders for the common good. This workshop is for anyone who wants to develop a better understanding of best practices to engage in the community around scholarship and teaching.
