“Connecting Cultures through Community Engaged Learning: Bridging Racial Divides” | Faculty Panel/Workshop – Wed. 11/3, 10-12pm
The Department of Race & Resistance Studies (RRS) and the Institute for Civic & Community Engagement (ICCE) organized a faculty development panel on Wed. Nov. 3rd from 10am-12pm. The panel was titled “Connecting Cultures through Community Engaged Learning: Bridging Racial Divides”. RRS faculty scholars Rama Ali Kased, Leora Kava, Ponipate Rokolekutu, and Larry Salomon shared highlights of their related work. This was followed by a moderated Q&A forum with four of their community partners: The Arab Resources Organizing Center, Coalition on Homelessness, Veilomani Community Group, and Just Cause.
By bringing together like-minded educators and community partners, the goal was to discuss challenges, trends, and strategies for using community-based service learning to bridge racial divides around the Bay Area. SF State faculty/staff and students across campus, as well as community partners, attended. Link to video recording coming soon!

NEW: Community Engaged Learning Attribute Initiative
Learn more about the systemwide effort to implement a common systemwide service-learning attribute (CSLI) in the student information system (CMS) to effectively identify and track SL courses. With this, a two common systemwide definition was created. (CSLI) for service learning and (CCEL) for other forms of curricular community-engaged learning. The attributes are applied based on a CEL survey tool that asks faculty about their teaching and community partnership practices. Faculty complete a separate survey for each course and the attribute is applied based on the faculty member’s responses.
- More information and the CEL survey tool can be found on the CEL Attribute Initiative webpage.
