Pitt is creating a Staff Community of Practice for those who support their unit’s implementation of community engagement.
The goal of the community is three-fold:
1) To build a network of community engagement practitioners who can support and mentor one another
2) To advance community engagement at Pitt, and
3) To strengthen your practice of community engagement
What is a community of practice? A community of practice (CoP) is a group of people who share a common concern, a set of problems, or an interest in a topic and who come together to fulfill both individual and group goals. Communities of practice often focus on sharing best practices and creating new knowledge to advance a domain of professional practice. Interaction on an ongoing basis is an important part of this. Many communities of practice rely on face-to-face meetings as well as web-based collaborative environments to communicate, connect and conduct community activities.
