Graduate Portfolio in Community Engagement
UGA graduate students have the opportunity to demonstrate their proficiency in community engagement through curricular and co-curricular work. In addition, graduate students interested in learning more about service-learning and community engagement may participate in OSL workshops and/or take GRSC 7870S, “Service-Learning Course Design,” or GRSC 7970S, "Approaches to Community Engagement."
In collaboration with the Graduate School, the Office of Service-Learning administers a Graduate Portfolio in Community Engagement.
The UGA Graduate Portfolio in Community Engagement is a voluntary, non-credit recognition and professional development program for graduate and professional students at the University of Georgia from a variety of disciplines, programs, and interests.
This program is intended to help graduate and professional students develop and document competencies relating to community-engaged teaching, research, and public service and outreach. The Community Engagement Portfolio is designed to help students:
• Prepare for careers as community-engaged scholars.
• Connect research and teaching to community engagement principles.
• Understand best practices in engaged teaching, engaged research, and engaged public service and outreach.
• Undertake and reflect on applied community engagement experiences through teaching, research, and/or public service and outreach.
• Document community engagement experiences.
Students interested in taking part in the Graduate Portfolio in Community Engagement program are encouraged to contact the Office of Service-Learning for assistance in planning and considering how best to incorporate their interests and work into this program. Students will also select a faculty mentor who can give guidance in their portfolio work.
See details on the program requirements in the attached PDFs (below). See samples submitted in prior semesters here.
