Community University Partner Award

Professional Development Resources

Morgridge Fellows

The purpose of the Morgridge Fellows program is to further institutionalize and support CES at UW–Madison. CES is defined as: teaching, research, and scholarly activities that are performed in equitable, mutually beneficial collaboration with communities and community members to fulfill campus and community objectives.

Fellows will receive a stipend of $1,500. The stipend can be used for conference attendance, resource materials, or other professional development activities relevant to furthering understanding of CES.

Professional Development Workshops

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. Check out past and upcoming Bagels and Research presetantions. All are welcome!

Community Engagement Preparation Resources

The Morgridge Center provides interactive workshops, online modules, and other educational resources for UW–Madison students (student organizations, classes, residence halls, etc.), staff and faculty who are involved in community-based work.

It is crucial that we think critically about our work with community members and organizations to ensure that we respect the existing work put forth by community leaders and find ways to mobilize our privilege as a campus community to support their efforts and initiatives.

Community Partnerships & Outreach Staff Network

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.
