Faculty and Staff
The Office of Community Engagement and Service is dedicated to supporting faculty and staff in engaged teaching, scholarship, and service.
Miami University defines Service-Learning as “an experiential pedagogical practice that uses action and reflection to meet needs and enhance learning through mutually beneficial, reciprocal partnerships". The Office of Community Engagement and Service offers a toolkit for new and returning Service-Learning instructors.
Engaged Scholarship, conceptualized by Ernest Boyer in 1996, "redefines faculty scholarly work from application of academic expertise to community engaged scholarship that involves the faculty member in a reciprocal partnership with the community, is interdisciplinary, and integrates faculty roles of teaching, research, and service" (NERCHE).
The Office of Community Engagement and Service is proud to recognize the efforts of Miami University faculty members to engage their students in the community. Award recipients are selected by the SL Designation Committee, based on excellence in engaged teaching and significant community impact.
