For Departments

The Bok Center welcomes opportunities to collaborate with departments and programs on large-scale initiatives like revising curricula, offering professional development opportunities to graduate students, and creating discipline-specific resources in areas like writing and speaking for undergraduates.

The Socially Engaged Learning initiative at the Bok Center supports faculty, graduate and undergraduate students in pedagogical approaches that impact K-12 education, helping faculty and students use their engagement in the community to inform their on-campus teaching and learning and to assess the value of socially engaged learning courses and activities.
