Learning Objectives

As a learning community of advisors, students, campus and community partners, participants in the Certificate in Public Scholaship develop their capacity to:

  1. Recognize and address institutional and historical relations of inequity and marginalization in campus-community partnerships and practices, while promoting access, equity, and inclusion. (Access, equity, inclusion)

  2. Facilitate collaboration and build partnerships that promote effective and creative problem-solving for social change. (Cross-sectoral collaboration/ problem-solving)

  3. Situate their research, teaching, and engagement practices in public or community contexts, while documenting and reflecting critically on those practices. (Critically engaged practice)

  4. Demonstrate and communicate the significance of their scholarly practice for diverse professional and community publics and audiences. (Demonstration and communication.)

Seminars and microseminars provide fellows with a background in the historical, political, and intellectual foundations of public scholarship. Individual or collaborative practicum projects create a space for practical experiences with public engagement. The certificate’s degree portfolio ensures that graduates can articulate the significance of their accomplishments in intellectual and professional contexts, including their home departments.
