Community Engaged Scholar-Practitioner Network (CESPN)


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.

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

As part of the 2022 Annual Meeting, we will gather in effort to establish and frame 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. We can't wait to see you there!
