Institute for Pedagogy in the Liberal Arts 2015: Community Engagement
Communities of Engagement suggests that institutions looking outward while inviting inward have connected in multiple ways to the larger public—in service learning programs, through public scholarship, in internship programs, through tackling the tough problems of ethics, through leadership in global issues of sustainability and global citizenship, for examples.
