Temple University is a state-related Carnegie Research University (highest research activity).
The College of Liberal Arts plays a tremendous role in Temple University’s academic success, and its mission mirrors the historical importance of the liberal arts in society, as well as the principles on which the university was founded.
The Community Engagement Learning Program is a new initiative created to build-out curriculum driven, community engagement experiences across Liberal Arts disciplines.
The College of Liberal Arts seeks a Community Engagement Learning Program Coordinator to develop new curricular projects to increase community engaged learning opportunities for CLA students. Acting as a liaison between faculty and a targeted group of community organizations, the Coordinator will facilitate, troubleshoot and optimize the logistics of the students’ learning experiences and support faculty in the development and execution of curricular initiatives that align with the needs of the community organizations. The Coordinator will develop relationships, training, assessment and reporting resources to ensure that the Community Engagement Learning Program is in line with its goals, and raise the visibility of the program to stakeholders and prospective participants in both the Temple University and external communities. The incumbent will report to the Dean or a dean’s designee, and work with a Faculty and Community Advisory Board that will support and evaluate program objectives and outcomes.
