community engagement experiences through participation in course work,
community-focused graduate research or creative work, and hands-on experience. Scholars
will maintain a portfolio that may contain reflection materials, research
documents, a record of experiential hours, and a final synthesis that documents
their deepened understanding of their role as a community engaged scholar.
Students will participate in 9 credits of academic coursework.
Students must maintain a 3.2 overall GPA and a B- or better in all courses
