The Global Movement of Engaged Universities Guiding Questions University Civic Engagement Exemplars How do universities in different regions of the world understand their civic mission? To what problems of civic life are they attempting to address through efforts to better engage students in communities? What practices are universities around the world using to better engage students in communities beyond service learning? How do such practices evolve over time? What difference have these made in the civic capacities of students and communities? What are the challenges? How do universities and communities define civic learning outcomes? How do they assess them? Economic Development and Participation How can civic engagement contribute to the economic participation of university graduates in various contexts? In what ways do universities link their civic engagement programs with efforts to improve graduate economic participation? What are the specific characteristics of the entrepreneurial mindset? How can universities prepare entrepreneurial students to launch or join small businesses that have a positive social and economic impact in their communities? How do service learning and other engaged pedagogies contribute to entrepreneurship education and graduate employability? In transitioning from education to employment, how are the challenges that women face different from those faced by men? 14.
