We dedicated our first gathering to building community among participants, as this group will become a network of supporters and champions that will sustain our work into the future. Participants will reflect on what is motivating them to undertake community-engaged work and identify the gifts, talents, skills, and relationships that will serve as a foundation upon which to build new engaged teaching competencies. 


  • Start building relationships of trust and support among FLC participants
