NCCE Releases Five Civic and Community Engagement Benefits Topical Briefs
Posted by North Carolina Campus Engagement on February 28, 2023
As part of the Contributions of Civic and Community Engagement in Higher Education Series, North Carolina Campus Engagement just released five Civic and Community Engagement Benefits Topical Briefs. These briefs continue to make the case for the benefits and value of higher education civic and community engagement (CCE) in these areas: Civic Learning, Empathy, Faculty Flourishing, Student Success, and Sustainability and Sense of Place.
These briefs are intended to support ongoing exploration and inquiry in each of these areas and to guide ongoing deepening of practice. Each brief includes a summary of the topic and the role of higher education in general and CCE in particular in advancing it, an annotated list of associated scholarship, and a list of references and additional readings. Quotes from students, alums, community members, faculty, staff, and literature related to CCE serve to concretize the possibilities and the stakes.
