The Office of Civic Engagement is accepting faculty applications for summer and fall 2016 course designation. If you plan to offer a course with a civic engagement component, please designate your course by Friday, March 11.
The benefits of designating a civic engagement course are:
- Students will see a community engagement attribute when searching for courses in Murphy Online
- Faculty will be eligible to apply for funding to support the engaged component of their courses. This includes student transportation between St. Thomas and an engagement site, guest speaker honoraria, parking passes, etc.
The office cannot guarantee funds will be available for applications submitted after the March 11 deadline.
