The Community Engagement Faculty Learning Community (CE-FLC), with support from a Davis Educational Foundation grant, invite you to a talk by Eric Hartman, titled "Community Outcomes, Student Learning, and Civic Mission: Approaching Community Partnerships.” 

Eric Hartman, a writer, educator, and nonprofit executive director, has worked for many years to advance efforts that are rooted in the reality we have, but visionary in terms of imagining and then creating a better tomorrow. His publications range from global service-learning, global citizenship, and fair trade learning; and span edited volumes, peer-reviewed journals in service-learning and international development, and popular and trade magazines such as "International Educator." He is currently completing "Building a Better World: The Pedagogy and Practice of Global Service-Learning" (Stylus, 2013) with Kiely, Friedrichs, and Boettcher. As Executive Director of Amizade Global Service-Learning (2007-10), Eric has advanced university-community engagement in more than a dozen communities around the world. Currently at Providence College, he has developed and led scores of academic service-learning courses in several US cities as well as in Bolivia, Ghana, Jamaica, The Navajo Nation, Peru, and Tanzania.

The grant was received from the Davis Educational Foundation, established by Stanton and Elisabeth Davis after Mr. Davis's retirement as chairman of Shaw’s Supermarkets, Inc.
