Community Engagement Professional Credentialing Program: Elective Micro-Credentials
Campus Compact’s Community Engagement Professional Credentialing Program provides civic and community engagement professionals (CEPs) the opportunity to gain formal recognition for the knowledge and skills they develop through their careers. It is also encourages and directs CEPs toward ongoing professional learning activities that foster reflective, inclusive, and equity-focused partnerships and commitments.
Professionals may apply for and earn individual micro-credentials--digital certificates recognizing knowledge, skills, experience, and critical commitments--that demonstrate their mastery in each core competency area. Each micro-credential is granted individually and has integrity and value in its own right. Ultimately, professionals can combine individual micro-credentials earned across a range of competency areas to seek full credentialed status as a Campus Compact-certified community engagement professional.
To qualify for full certification as a Campus Compact Certified CEP, you must earn each of the three (3) core micro-credentials (Community Engagement Fundamentals, Equity & Inclusion, and Community Partnerships) [you may apply for core micro-credentials here] as well as at least three (3) elective micro-credentials.
The six (6) elective micro-credential currently available to earn are:
- Assessment and Evaluation
- Community-Engaged Learning & Teaching
- Engaged Research
- Institutionalizing Engagement
- Program Administration
- Supporting Engaged Faculty Development
The additional seven (7) elective micro-credentials will be released progressively through 2020 and 2021.
