Brooklyn_s Public Scholars: Civic research & the Community-engaged campus

Category 3: Demonstration Site Grant

"Civic research & the Community-engaged campus_ takes an asset-based approach to both youth and community development, placing critical civic research at the center of a proposal to build Kingsborough Community College_s institutional capacity to address the critical issues facing our students and working-class urban immigrant communities. Our model integrates an infusion of faculty development programs; innovative digital learning, research, and information literacy platforms; community-engaged research and teaching opportunities, strategic community partnership development; and institutional support structures for civic engagement and public scholarship."
