Ginsberg Center’s Community Engagement @ Michigan Series 2023-2024

Ginsberg Center’s Community Engagement @ Michigan Series addresses critical topics in community-engaged teaching and learning, research, scholarship, and program/project development. Through seminars and events, this faculty and professional development series supports faculty, staff, administrators, post-docs, and graduate students at U-M who are interested in learning about or further developing community-driven practice. Participants engage with strategies and approaches to develop and sustain community partnerships for research & teaching, prepare students to work with communities, emphasize civic learning across disciplines, develop and refine course-based and program curriculum, and more. 

Offered in Fall and Winter terms. Open to Faculty, Admin/Staff, and Postdocs. Some sessions open to Graduate Students. See workshop descriptions for details.

Community-engaged courses invite undergraduate and graduate students at Michigan to work with and in local communities through course assignments, clinical experiences, research projects, service hours, partnership development and other forms of engagement. Making these community-engaged learning activities accessible to students requires instructors to commit to considerable reflection, planning, and communication with students and community partners. In this session, participants will learn about common barriers to student access associated with community-engaged courses, identify accessibility practices for course design and disability accommodations, and discuss how to apply these practices to their own community-engaged courses and programs. 

This session is designed for participants with instructional responsibilities and is open to faculty, admin/staff, post-docs, and graduate student instructors (GSIs).
