Educational philosopher John Dewey wrote, “Give the pupils something to do, not something to learn; and the doing is of such a nature as to demand thinking; learning naturally results.” The Bennion Center is pleased to partner with faculty who are exploring the connection between academics and community. The pedagogy of community engaged learning is evolving to a level of scholarship that reaches across disciplines and traditional teaching practices.
