About Campus Engage

 

Based within the Irish Universities Association, Campus Engage is dedicated to supporting Irish higher education institutions to embed, scale and promote civic and community engagement across staff and student teaching, learning and research.

Campus Engage is overseen by a steering Committee, facilitated by the IUA. Currently all 7 Irish universities and the Technological University of Dublin are represented on the Steering Committee and participate in the following areas of activity:

Community-based Teaching and Learning: accredited experiential community-based learning/ community-based research (service learning).

Engaged Research and Innovation for Societal Impact: research that aims to improve, understand or investigate an issue of public interest or concern, advanced with community partners rather than for them.

Student Volunteering: scaling student volunteering through our online ‘tech for good’ system studentvolunteer.ie

Planning for Impact: building a national Framework for measuring and evaluating the positive social impact of higher education civic and community engagement.
