Community Engaged independent study

Hey, Eagles! Let's make a difference!

Community Engagement prepares educated, engaged citizens who contribute to the public good.

What is Community Engaged independent study?

Students interested in pursuing community-based academic endeavors, such as research or projects that are developed in conjunction with the expressed needs of a community business or organization, should start by securing a faculty mentor (traditionally, within their major or close interest area).

  • A list of over 400 potential mentors is on the Student Research, Creativity and Experiential Learning webpage- contact any whose work you find interesting or speak to any of your instructors who may be working on an appropriate project.
    • Graduate students should start with faculty in their home programs.
  • Projects can be completed as a volunteer or for credit, and students can apply for grants to get paid to work on your project.
