In February 2007, more than 150 faculty engaged in community scholarship representing all 23 campuses, and their research partners attended the Second Annual CSU Conference on Community-Based Teaching and Research: Diversity in California. California is one of four states designated majority-minority, with 56% of the general population now minority (non-white)1. These profound demographic shifts create new challenges and opportunities for the state in almost every arena from education to health care to economic development in which the CSU is deeply involved.

Conference Themes

  • research on engaged pedagogies (e.g. service learning and civic engagement impact on students, curriculum, and/or institutions);
  • research and other forms of scholarship to address specific community needs (e.g. health disparity issues, building multicultural competencies);
  • research methods involving faculty, students, and community (e.g. ethnographic methods, participatory action research, involving students in community based research).
