As Carroll College undergoes a curricular review that will result in a new Core Curriculum, it is an opportune time to align these efforts with an institutional commitment to engaged learning that manifests Carroll’s commitment to provide an “integrative and value-centered education rooted in freedom of inquiry” as well as serving “all with humility, especially our neighbors who are poor and marginalized” (Carroll College Mission Statement).  Action items associated with this plan are:

  • Consult with Office of Academic Affairs about progress with revision of Core Curriculum
  • Recruit members from among faculty, staff, students and community partners to serve on an Engaged Learning Advisory Committee to begin in conjunction with introduction of revised Core Curriculum
  • Establish benchmarks and outcomes for engaged learning at Carroll College
  • Prepare and submit annual report to the Office of Academic Affairs
