Community Engagement


What is Community-Engaged Education?

Community-engaged education at McMaster aims to provide students with the opportunity to integrate their academic knowledge with experiences in the community to address social, economic, environmental and health concerns. Community-engaged education is a type of experiential education that enables students to learn from and give to communities. Community-engaged education can occur both within a course as well as through a co-curricular experience.

Community engagement minor

The Interdisciplinary Minor in Community Engagement allows students to deepen and expand their understanding of communities and develop skills for principled and effective engagement. The interdisciplinary nature of the minor allows for a broad knowledge base from which to establish relationships with a range of communities both locally and globally.
