In an effort to form a community of scholar-practitioners involved in service-learning and community engagement, we are partnering with Uniservitate to bring together a team of colleagues from Catholic colleges and universities to explore the past, present and future of Catholic university-community engagement.

Thank you for joining us at the 2022 CESPN Conference!

In and With Community: Framing and Supporting Engaged Scholarship through a Catholic, Faith-Based Lense

In an effort to support a community of scholar-practitioners involved in service-learning and community engagement and as part of the 2022 Annual Meeting ACCU partnered with Uniservitate to bring together a team of colleagues from Catholic colleges and universities to explore the past, present and future of Catholic university-community engagement.

At this pre-conference, we reflected on our unique position as SLCE scholar-practitioners at Catholic, faith-based institutions, explore opportunities to deepen practice and scholarship, dialogue about potential pathways for collaboration and field-building, and determine next steps for action.
