The first requirement for the Graduate Certification in Community Engagement is the core engagement competencies. For the 2017-2018 academic year, the core engagement competencies include topics:

Students usually fulfill this requirement by attending seminars coordinated by University Outreach and Engagement. The series is offered on an annual basis, in person, Friday afternoons from 1:30-3:30 PM during Fall and Spring semesters.

Students who have completed coursework that addresses a particular core engagement competency may ask to have the syllabi, reading lists, and assignments evaluated as potential alternatives to the required seminars. Contact the program coordinator to request such a review.

In rare instances, students may request a make-up session to review materials from the core engagement seminars.
