Fitz Center for Leadership in Community

Integration of Engaged Teaching, Learning and Scholarship

Community engaged learning (CEL) is a primary means of engaging with the community; addressing critical community-identified interests and needs through learning opportunities, and sustaining reciprocal relationships. Within the Fitz Center for Leadership in Community, community engaged learning is a means to an end. The purpose is to build community with urban Dayton and the surrounding region to achieve the common good. The CEL team is intentionally working to deepen UD’s commitment to and experiences with community engagement and to act as a catalyst for enhancing or creating new community engaged learning opportunities.
