Community Of Practice
UTEP’s Community of Engaged Scholars (CES) is made up of faculty members and community leaders who are actively involved with the scholarship of engagement, which includes teaching, research, and/or service activities. Housed within UTEP’s Center for Community Engagement (CCE), the CES offers a networking base that helps connect faculty and students with community partners to conduct enhanced student learning and research activities aimed at serving the Paso Del Norte region.
Community Engagement Leadership (CEL) Program Faculty Guidelines and Curriculum Resources
An exciting new way to teach your courses with an officially designated Community Engagement and Leadership (CEL) component! Many faculty for years have included some form of community engagement and/or leadership aspects in their courses, but we now have an official “CEL” designation and curriculum approach that can be added to one’s teaching arsenal. Students who take these types of courses will now be able to see this new “CEL” designation appear on their transcripts, which is helpful for recruiters and employers looking for talented graduates with valuable experience and expertise in community-engaged and leadership activities. Such courses also help faculty to further invigorate their curriculum, fine-tune teaching and research skills in line with the Boyer model of scholarship, find new opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborations, and overall maximize evaluation and recognition of their work.
