  • Community-Engaged Practice for Affinity Groups – Webinars in this category should address community-engaged practice within specific institutional types (e.g., Research 1 institutions; community colleges; rural institutions; graduate-only institutions; professional schools; etc…)
  • COVID-19/Rapid Response & Innovation – Webinars in this category should address ways in which institutions and organizations mobilized to provide mutual support to community, adapted to the switch from in-person to online community engagement, and lessons learned on how to engage communities in times of crisis.
  • Engaged Faculty Development – Webinars in this category should address innovative practice in community-engaged teaching, learning, and scholarship.
  • Equity, Empowerment, and Civic Engagement – Webinars in this category should address effective strategies for incorporating issues of equity, community empowerment, power dynamics, race, and/or economic disparities in community-engaged teaching, learning, and scholarship.
  • Professional Development for Practitioners – Webinars in this category should address issues specific to community engagement administrators. Topics can range from an introduction to academic culture to expanding the structure and reach of your community engagement center to taking your community partnerships to the next level.
  • Student Engagement in Democracy – Webinars in this category should address innovative strategies for engaging students in electoral processes at all levels (national, regional, local); innovative student civic leadership development strategies and programs.
  • Student Social Innovation – Webinars in this category should address student projects that have become social innovation initiatives with communities. This could include social entrepreneurship, micro-credit/lending, or activism and advocating in the form of mobilizing people around a cause or injustice.
