CommUniversity classes were first developed by the Africana Studies department to introduce more voices of the African diaspora into our students’ learning. When the Community Engagement Centers were launched, Africana Studies brought back the format to enhance student learning and forge community connections. Since 2020, these classes have also been offered in partnership with faculty from several departments including English, law, and business. These courses require significant planning and application of best practices in community engagement, and innovative instruction. This initiative will work with a transdisciplinary team of faculty, staff, and residents to develop a framework to support the expansion of these courses.
