This workshop will focus on how faculty and practitioners can move beyond problematic traditional civic engagement models and work with stakeholders to co-design, implement, and evaluate initiatives though Critically Engaged Civic Learning (CECL), a new equity-based framework. Additionally, insights and strategies will be shared to help reform and then operationalize promotion and tenure policies to better recognize and retain civically engaged faculty. Finally, these efforts will be woven together with a series of collaborative grants and the creation of the New England Equity and Engagement Consortium (N3EC) to demonstrate how higher education institutions can advance their civically engaged and equity-based missions.
