    Center for Community-Engaged Teaching and Research

    The Center for Community-Engaged Teaching and Research (CETR) supports community-engaged teaching, learning, and research that promote knowledge creation, civic development, and community transformation.

    The Center

    • Encourages faculty to learn about and appreciate CETR, and to join a network of faculty peers who consider themselves to be community-engaged scholars;
    • Equips faculty to practice innovative CETR through consultations, professional development programming, grants, logistic support, and in-print and web-based resources;
    • Introduces faculty to local communities and facilitates connections between faculty and community organizations;
    • Creates opportunities for students to gain leadership experience by supporting classes taught using CETR;
    • Helps faculty, students, and community partners navigate the University's administrative policies, procedures, and expectations so that they can successfully implement CETR;
    • Advocates for the institutionalization of CETR and convenes stakeholders to shape engagement at Duquesne.
