Based at the Irish Universities Association, Campus Engage is a national initiative which supports the implementation of civic and community engagement practice and national higher education policy across the Irish higher education system.
Through its Steering Committee and associated Working Groups, Campus Engage is dedicated to providing capacity building resources and training services on civic and community engagement across the teaching, learning and research.
Currently the seven universities, DIT and HEA are represented on the Steering Committee and participate in four national working groups covering:
- Integrating accredited community-based learning into mainstream teaching and learning activities
- Driving and promoting Engaged Research for impact in Ireland
- Leading the development and scaling of the studentvolunteer.ie website and data management system
- Building a national and international framework for measuring and evaluating impact of civic and community engagement.
