Autumn Workshop: Community Engagement in Study Abroad

In addition to the significant economic impact Study Abroad has on local communities, it can also serve to form a meaningful connection with the community. Community Engagement and Service-Learning have become important components to many educational programmes in recent years, as they promote a deeper learning experience for students along with benefits to the communities in which they serve.

We will hear from three Study Abroad providers- Duquesne University, University of Notre Dame, and Champlain College- about the positive Community Engagment they have developed and the impact it has had thus far on their students and their communities. There will also be time after each presentation for questions and open discussion on what other types of engagement opportunities might be possible in Dublin and beyond.
