Amy Koritz, Ph.D; Director, Center for Civic Engagement, Drew University

Please join us in a discussion about community engagement in higher education led by Amy Koritz, Ph.D. Professor Koritz is a Professor of English and Director of the Center of Civic Engagement at Drew University. She is also the co-editor of Civic Engagement in the Wake of Katrina (University of Michigan Press, 2009), which, through a collection of essays, explores the ways institutions of higher education and the arts responded to the destruction Hurricane Katrina inflicted on the Gulf Coast in 2005.

Professor Koritz also served as project director of Imagining America's Civic Professionalism project, and currently serves as Drew's Project Pericles and Campus Compact liaisons. She also directs Drew’s Civic Scholars program--a cohort-based scholarship program currently serving 115 students.

Topics covered during the discussion with Professor Koritz will include how to build strong community partnerships, how to bridge the gap between community-engaged teaching and scholarship, and how to connect community engagement outcomes to course outcomes. This workshop is open to all faculty with an interest in community engagement. Please stay after the event to learn more about the community-based learning and research community of practice being developed in collaboration with CITLS. Lunch will be provided.
