UW students take part in a Material Science & Engineering 350 class

Professional Development

The Morgridge Center plans a series of workshops for faculty and staff, based on what Community-based Learning instructors have shared they would like more support with.

We also host Bagels and Research (typically held monthly during academic semesters) presentations highlighting Community-based Research on the UW campus. Presenters included graduate students, faculty/staff and community partners. This series showcases the breadth of community-based research on campus by providing in-depth examples of current research as it relates to students learning outcomes, community impacts and theoretical exploration.

Susan Lochner Atkinson will share about IAP’s work, presenting effective strategies to enhance inclusivity—illustrated by IAP’s identity websites and supports, along with the Global Gateway program. Dr. Faran Saeed will provide insights into global DEI in higher education. He further will provide DEI best practices and highlight the Conversation Café (CC) series, a signature program focused on critical thinking, research, and DEI, led by the International Division. Samantha McCabe will focus on ISS and share different initiatives on campus focused on creating more inclusive environments for international students at UW by presenting on ISS’s international student advisory boards (ISAB) and programs like the International REACH program. The panel discussion will conclude with Dr. Kate McCleary, who will serve as a discussant and provide reflection as associate dean of high impact practices in the International Division.

Dr. Elise Ahn will moderate the discussion and will provide a brief overview of the Wisconsin in the world: Internationalization at the University of Wisconsin–Madison book project that involved numerous campus contributors.

Community Partnerships & Outreach Staff Network members share a vision of the Wisconsin Idea that recognizes community members as full partners, essential to the engaged, collaborative work that transforms our communities and institutions for the public good.

The Community Partnerships and Outreach (CPO) Staff Network was established in 2008 as a community of practice of University of Wisconsin–Madison staff members who span the boundaries between campus and community. Staff members are the “brand representatives” of the Wisconsin Idea.

CPO Staff Network professionals facilitate projects, programs, services and relationships with community partners that are sustained, mutually beneficial, equitable and respectful of the knowledge, values, priorities, resources and needs of all partners. Visit the CPO staff network page for upcoming meetings.
