Core Engagement Competency Workshops (First Requirement)

The first requirement for the Graduate Certification in Community Engagement is the core engagement competency workshop.

Students usually fulfill this requirement by attending workshops coordinated by University Outreach and Engagement. The workshop series is offered on an annual basis, synchronously via zoom on Friday afternoons from 1:30-3:30 p.m. during Fall and Spring semesters. Students have the option to participate asynchronously as well.

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 workshops. Contact the program coordinator to request such a review.

Students who miss workshop have the option to make them up asynchronously.
