Description

The mission of the UMMS Community Engagement Committee is to promote inter-professional community engagement focused on teaching and service. In teaching, we advance service learning; in service, we advance action that responds to community-identified need. Service-learning is a pedagogical strategy that integrates community-responsive service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities. The Committee has a diverse membership of faculty, staff and students from across the School of Medicine, Graduate Nursing School and Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. Its work is accomplished by three sub-committees: Internal Relations, External Relations and Database. Recent activities of the Committee will be highlighted including the results of the Community Engagement Survey, promotion of and participation in the 2016 Greater Worcester CHIP (Community Health Improvement Plan) and the development of a new population clerkship placement in collaboration with the Joint Coalition on Health. We encourage participation in the CHIP and we are seeking collaboration and partnership with community organizations, groups and individuals; additional strategies to promote community engagement; and new members from the UMMS community.
