Check out our new video documenting a service-learning course taught last semester through the Colin Powell School's political science department.
The course, "Animal Welfare in Historical Perspective," paired research librarian Daisy Dominguez with Brian Shapiro, New York State Director of the Humane Society of the United States, as co-educators. The video highlights just one of the exciting ways faculty and staff at the Colin Powell School and the City College of New York are transforming the traditional classroom experience through engaged scholarship.
The Office of Engaged Scholarship at the Colin Powell School comprises a number of initiatives and programs: service-learning courses, community-based participatory research (CBPR), public scholarship, the NYMAPS Collaborative (formerly the New York Metro-Area Partnership for Service-Learning), and the NYMAPS Community Partner Institute and Fellowship.
The office invites faculty to broaden the audience for their research, connect with community partners for collaborative projects, and design a service-learning course to enhance student learning. Through all these aspects, CCNY faculty and partnering community-based organizations explore a variety of pathways to leverage academic expertise for public good.
