Fitz Center for Leadership in Community

Bridging Classroom and Community

The CEL team staff provides trainings/orientations for students in courses, internships, LLC’s, and programs. Such orientation and training help students prepare to be effective and appropriate partners in the community engaged learning experience. Important elements include reflecting on concepts embedded in “community engagement” (reciprocity, doing "with" not "for," creating common ground, etc.), discussing multiculturalism, examining power and privilege, reviewing risk and liability information, discussing a code of ethics for community engagement (acting professionally, accountability, respect, etc.), and reflecting on the value of community.
