Report: Civic and Academic Engagement in the Multiversity: Institutional Trends and Initiatives at the University of California
AbstractCivic engagement is moving to the forefront of higher education discussions as universities seek ways not only to intensify studentsâ€™ learning experiences but also to forge stronger links with the communities they are meant to serve. Within the University of California system, there are already multiple examples of service-learning, university-community partnerships, and volunteer initiatives. In June 2005, faculty, academic staff, and student representatives from across the University of California system gathered at a symposium held on the Berkeley campus to discuss and analyze the important interface of civic and academic engagement, and to explore ways to further expand civic engagement as a core component in the University of Californiaâ€™s teaching, research, and public service mission. This document provides a summary of the proceedings for that symposium.
