Faculty in the College of Educational Studies seeks opportunities to collaborate with local and international communities. These relationships are built on trust, dialogue and reciprocity that are the fundamental elements to civic engagement. The Hassinger Chair brings projects to the attention of the CES community that have the potential to address educational problems, e.g. equity, achievement of minoritized groups, etc. within local and/or international contexts. Success of these collaborations is determined mutually and often results in greater understanding, new learning, improved practice, and scholarship. Within the CES, faculty members also develop respect and appreciation for each other's disciplines by convening Community Brown Bag Conversations where research and innovative teaching pedagogies are shared routinely. These opportunities foster collaborations in teaching, research and civic engagement.
