The Center for Teaching is hosting a conversation with Barbara Holland, recognized internationally for her expertise on organizational change in higher education, community engagement, service-learning, and partnerships. Her talk entitled “The Strategic Importance of Community Engagement to University Success” will be held at the Center for Teaching on Monday, November 12th at 4:00pm.

Dr. Holland will talk about the state of community engagement in higher education today (particularly in the realm of teaching), strategies for developing partnerships that transform campus and community, strategies of assessing community engagement for improved teaching/research, as well as other issues that might help faculty and administrators grasp the legitimacy, contributions, and need for community engagement in Vanderbilt’s teaching and research missions.
