All members of the Lafayette community are expected to participate in a Principles of Community Engagement module prior to beginning work in the community. These learning modules help participants understand how to engage responsibly with community organizations



Reflection allows participants to connect their community engagement experiences with previous life experiences, observations, and academic knowledge. Reflection activities can deepen students’ understanding of themselves and the communities in which they live, learn, and work.

Reflection questions ask:
  • Participants to think about the relationship between themselves, society, and the community-engaged project
  • Participants to consider causes, symptoms, and impacts of the social question being addressed
Contact Chelsea Morrese ( to schedule your Principles of Community Engagement Module or reflection session. Sample reflection questions are also available
