Since the mid-1990's, the Center has promoted and supported projects that involve groups of faculty and students working together on specific teaching and learning issues or research questions, with generous support from the Bush and William & Flora Hewlett foundations.
The Communities Initiative supported two types of communities:
- Teaching communities. Groups of faculty and students investigate specific teaching and learning problems and opportunities.
- Research communities. Groups of faculty and students pursue traditional scholarship or the scholarship of teaching.
Ideally, a community comprises at least two faculty members and at least two students.
We invite you to learn about past projects in this initiative:
