EDUCATING THE 21st-CENTURY STUDENT
This year's conference includes a section on connecting education and civic engagement, educational partnerships that cross national boundaries, and instructional methods that are adaptive and/or less bound by books or buildings.
Hosted by the UTEP Department of Philosophy, this is an initiative dedicated to promoting philosophical dialogue for children and youth in the El Paso area. Our program involves collaboration between local teachers, UTEP students and professors, as well as several dedicated community partners.
Visit the CUE to view community partnering agencies and to identify community needs to address. Students, staff and faculty are encouraged to partner with community organizations to help identify needs and the volunteers to help meet them.
Community organizations may individually manage their agency profiles.
CUE system also assists with an internal tool to manage service-learning courses, placements and the tracking of hours.
The CCE fulfills its mission through a number of collaborations, partnerships, and programs. Our programs are designed to engage students and faculty with the community in hands-on, learning experiences that serve community needs.
We, as the partnership, began to invite UTEP grad students (health sciences) and community members who were interested in participation. We also began to explore opportunities for community-engaged education opportunities. We began to align our work with the Healthy People 2020 initiative.
El Paso Parks & Recreation is a proud community partner with the CES. The CES and UTEP work closely with Mr. David Lopez, Senior Division Coordinator. The purpose of the Parks and Recreation Department is to provide indoor and outdoor leisure services to persons of all ages so they can develop skills, socialize, experience nature, relax and live a healthier lifestyle.
