Under the guidance of the CEC Steering Committee, the Community Engagement Center provides input regarding institutional and departmental planning. The CEC Steering Committee plays a vital role in the center’s activities and is made up of representatives from community partnerships, faculty, students and staff. The Steering Committee includes at least 3 “assigned” faculty representatives at all times.
| Some of the roles the Steering Committee facilitates include:|
– Hiring of CEC Staff
-Strategic planning of the center
-Awards and recognition
-Guiding assessment effort
Additionally, CEC staff members meet with our community partners regularly throughout the year to establish, revise and re-work our policies to ensure reciprocity and capacity building within the community partnership. Finally, as mentioned, we place strong emphasis in creating reciprocal relationships where there is consistent communication occurring between our office and our community partners.
|Students are also an integral component of the CEC Steering Committee. These are many of the opportunities available to students involved in the Committee:|
-Facilitate the decision making process of award funding for other students, staff, faculty and community partner proposals
-Initiation and implementation of student proposals for future projects
-Engaging with other students in the college governance
