“CSL 101” Workshop | Friday, March 2nd, 1:00-3:00pm, LIB 286 (Faculty Commons)

Learn about Community Service Learning (CSL) and how to integrate this high impact practice into your courses.  We’ll discuss the nuts and bolts of how to turn a current course into a CSL-related class for your students or create a new CSL course.  We’ll provide a brief overview of ICCE, talk about just what exactly is CSL, and what benefits and values does this contribute to student success.  Service-learning outcomes will also be discussed.  We will share the nuts and bolts of designating a course to become an official CSL class including the course proposal content, online form, and review process. This workshop will include an experiential component whereby faculty participants will discuss course syllabi and engage in small group dialogue.  Additionally, we’ll share what resources are available to faculty and lecturers to support your teaching, research, and service opportunities. Join us and learn more! Light refreshments will be served.

"Learning by Doing: Fifty Years of Community Service Learning in the College of Ethnic Studies" | Friday, April 20th, 9:30am- 12:00pm, LIB 286 (Faculty Commons)

During its first 50 years, the College of Ethnic Studies has nurtured strong ties to community partners by placing students in volunteer positions and internships with some of the most dynamic organizations and agents of change in the SF Bay Area.  Join us for this Friday morning April 20th workshop when five of the College’s most seasoned community partners will offer their insight about the best ways to promote social change through education.  From their vantage point as activists in the field, and experiences working with SFSU, community partners will share how to best prepare our students for their life’s work as agents of change. Following the speaker’s panel, we will engage participants in a collaborative workshop between community partners and faculty to identify best practices for Community Service Learning (CSL) in the next fifty years.  Join us and learn more about our exciting work! Light refreshments will be served.

ICCE Organized the Keynote Panel on Civic Engagement at the 2018 SF State Faculty Retreat  | January 18th, 2018

Organized by ICCE, an interdisciplinary, dynamic discussion was moderated by Dr. Nina Roberts, ICCE Faculty Director & Professor of Recreation, Parks & Tourism. Members of the distinguished panel included Anoshua Chaudhuri, Professor & Chair, Dept of Economics/College of Business (ICCE Advisory Council member); Felix Kury, Lecturer, Latina/Latino Studies, College of Ethnic Studies; Leticia (“Leti”) Marquez-Magana, Professor of Biology & Director of the Health Equity Research Lab; and Eunice Kim, PACE graduate student.  Attendees learned how faculty contribute to finding solutions to many of society’s greatest challenges and civically engage students in learning that affirms their social justice values leading to student success.  People in the session were able to explore how faculty support students seeking to address important social/environmental justice issues through hands-on experiences, high impact practices, and enhance their sense of civic responsibility through action in the community. And, ICCE also helped out with Retreat planning by sponsoring the Dessert Social!
