Graduate Certification in Community Engagement is a non-credit professional development program for graduate and professional students interested in working with communities, broadly defined (e.g., nonprofits, K-12 schools, local and regional government, or industry partners, etc.). The program is open to masters and Ph.D. students and helps them learn more about service-learning, civic engagement, community based research, science outreach, broader impacts, digital humanities, and more. We focus on putting big ideas into practice. Graduates of the program say it gives them practical skills for collaboration and is a helpful credential in their job searches.
The certification is very flexible, easy work into their classes, and supports their degree work. For example, the certification program's three requirements (workshops, project, and portfolio) can be taken over a number of years. Once the requirements are completed, students earn an official academic credential on their transcripts. There is no cost for participating in this program.
