SW PA County Community of Practice

Higher Education faculty, staff, and administrators that facilitate engagement across Southwestern PA are invited to learn and connect through an online community of practice. Attendees will participate in facilitated conversations offered by the University of Pittsburgh's Office of Community and Governmental Relations designed to help them develop items in support of applications for the Campus Compact microcredential in Community Engagement Fundamentals and to establish professional development networks even beyond the credential.

The Community of Practice is hosted free of charge from May 14 - August 13. The time committment will be 10 hours of guided activities and conversation prompts over 7 sessions. You can also volunteer to become a Learning Facilitor for your institution. More information is available via this PDF.

Campus Compact’s Community Engagement Credentialing Program provides civic and community engagement professionals with opportunities to earn formal recognition for the knowledge and skills they develop throughout their careers. It provides a framework for community engagement professionals to grow and achieve in the field in ways that encourage effective, inclusive, and equity-based partnerships and practices.
