During the resource sharing time we will focus on competency areas identified as priorities by this network at the 2018 Minnesota Community Engagement Network gathering. They include:

  1. Ability to communicate an institution’s brand of engagement
  2. Knowledge of civic learning pedagogies (as potentially distinct from community-engaged pedagogies)
  3. Knowledge of assessment and evaluation methods; ability to assess and evaluate impact of community engagement on its stakeholders
  4. Commitment to developing critical consciousness through meaningful praxis (reflection, dialogue, and action)
  5. Ability to construct solid learning outcome goals
  6. Ability to navigate the institution’s political environment
  7. Knowledge of the ways in which students’ identities inform and frame their community engagement experience, particularly those students from historically marginalized groups
