Resources for Faculty

The CCE can assist you with connecting your academic endeavors to the local community through Community-Based Research (CBR) and Community-Based Learning (CBL) initiatives.

Community-Based Research

Community-Based Research (CBR) at Colorado College involves partnerships between students, staff, faculty, and community members who collaboratively engage in research with the purpose of ameliorating a pressing community concern (this articulation follows Strand et al, 2003). 

The Collaborative for Community Engagement is proud to support existing and emerging CBR projects across a variety of academic disciplines.

Community-Based Learning

In collaboration with the Crown Faculty Center and the Associate Dean of the Faculty, the Collaborative for Community Engagement (CCE) supports faculty who develop and teach Community-Based Learning (CBL) courses.

Currently the CCE offers


CBL Tagging Process

The CCE is currently working to revitalize a community-based learning (CBL) course list.  We invite faculty to either submit a quick application, email jradke@coloradocollege.edu a syllabus, or set up a brief meeting with CCE Director Jordan Travis Radke to discuss the course. Click here for more information about the CCE's definition of and criteria for CBL pedagogy.  This is a rolling application process, but a list of tagged courses must be sent to the Registrar by early March for the following school year. 


Faculty Development and Support

The CCE is currently engaged in a "Semester of Listening" as part of a larger strategic planning process.  A key goal of this process is to gather faculty input on the best strategies through which the CCE can support community-based learning and research.  Please stay tuned for upcoming initiatives!  

Have ideas or suggestions? Please email CCE Director Jordan Travis Radke at jradke@coloradocollege.edu.


Individual Consultations

The CCE is happy to assist faculty with individualized support for the development of a Community-Based Learning course. For a consultation, please e-mail Jordan Travis Radke at Jordan.Radke@ColoradoCollege.edu.
