The Citation in Community-Engaged Scholarship is a new academic program offered by the Rochester Center for Community Leadership. Through pursuing an academic citation in community-engaged scholarship, students passionate about experiential learning and responding to community-identified needs are able to design a course of study and practice that complements the Rochester Curriculum and their chosen areas of study. The citation is designed to contextualize abstract theories, develop critical skills, and challenge assumptions that will prepare them for their future at UR and beyond.
To receive the Citation in Community-Engaged Scholarship, students must complete the following requirements (minimum 16 credits): 12 credits in community-engaged coursework, two 2-credit community-engaged scholarship seminars, and complete a community-engaged capstone. These courses can be taken as part of a student’s major, minor or cluster.
RCCL will be hosting an information session on the Citation program: Wednesday, October 25th from 5:00-6:00pm in 407 Douglass Commons.
