Build Unique Opportunities for Students to Create Civic Engagement & Develop Leadership Skills

Many campuses are finding it hard to recruit and engage student leaders because of the lack of continuity in student participation due to COVID-19 and limited knowledge of prior in-person community engagement. This gap has resulted in the need for additional training, orientation and education of those students who are engaging in community-based learning opportunities. Community organizations also had significant interruptions to their operations so those who coordinate engagement at colleges are scrambling to rebuild these essential long-term reciprocal partnerships.

Gather your faculty and staff who oversee service and community engagement opportunities on your campus and join us on July 24, 2024. Our presenter will share how through a reimagined student preparation and training program, peer support and mentoring model, and directed community partner check-ins, her team was able to rebuild intentional and critical community engagement programs on her campus.

Leave this session with a broader view of community engagement – beyond traditional service-learning and volunteerism – to create a variety of learning and meaningful leadership development opportunities for your students. 

Topics Covered

Gain crucial, actionable takeaways that will help you:

  • Develop a framework for training curricula that integrates community engagement learning and leadership development, centering on critical reflection.
  • Utilize a rubric to assess how partnerships are going for both the students and the agency to assess capacity, needs and create open communication channels.
  • Provide the “why” behind community engagement, the importance of intentional and critical community engagement so that students are applying their classroom learning in practical, hands-on experiences.
  • Overcome the participation gap by fostering peer support and mentoring programs to recruit and engage student participation to add another layer of support to new/emerging leaders.
  • Rebuild previous relationships with community organizations through intentional communication and outreach initiatives.


Courtney Holder currently serves as the Assistant Director for Leadership & Community Service-Learning, Stamp Student Union at the University of Maryland (UMD), College Park.
