Competencies of Second Generation Community Engagement Professionals: Findings from the Campus Compact CEP Project

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session will present findings of a literature review and corresponding study that examined competencies of Community Engagement Professionals (CEPs). CEPs are professional staff whose primary job is to support and administrate community-university engagement. Given the dearth of empirical literature on CEPs in higher education, the team of researchers drew from abundant literature on community-university engagement practices to infer competencies. Researchers then compiled the identified competencies into a ranking tool that was administered to CEPs at professional association meetings. Results include a preliminary competency model for second generation CEPs.
