2018-19 University Learning Community to Focus on Emory and South DeKalb

In 2016-17, the CFDE Engaged Learning Program collaborated with the Campus Life’s Civic and Community Engagement to facilitate a pilot University Learning Community. This innovative learning community included faculty, staff, students, and community partners in a year-long engagement that resulted in five community-based projects.

For 2018-19, we will again collaboratively facilitate a University Learning Community—this time, focused on communities in South Dekalb County. Building on previous university-community partnerships in this area, the ULC will be organized around the theme of “Living Well for the Long Term,” and as with the first ULC, will engage faculty, staff, students, and community partners who will work together to develop projects that respond to community needs and provide well-structured opportunities for community-based teaching and learning. Keep an eye out for the call for participation.

At the same time, Dr. Karen Andes, who was a participant in the pilot Buford Highway ULC, will facilitate a Phase II of the Buford Highway area work as the CFDE Faculty Coordinator.
