Faculty and Community Partners


For Faculty Partners


The Jandon Center for Community Engagement (JCCE) is committed to supporting faculty who integrate community partnerships in their teaching as community-based learning or in their research as community-based participatory research. The JCCE also encourages and promotes the diverse ways that the Smith staff and faculty become involved in other community partnerships. The Community Engagement and Social Change (CESC) Concentration has been developed by faculty in collaboration with the JCCE.

Apply for Support


The JCCE invites proposals from Smith faculty to support the revision of existing courses or the implementation of new courses to incorporate community-connected pedagogy. CBL pedagogy integrates community-based activities into the curriculum to both enhance learning and meet community goals. Community projects range from direct service to mutually beneficial research.

The Jandon Center has funds to support costs associated with CBL courses, including but not limited to: field trips, guest speaker honoraria, meeting costs, materials for learning/research activities and reports.


Submit applications in July for courses taught in fall semester and in November for courses taught in the spring semester, using the application form below.
