The Center for Community-Engaged Teaching and Research (CETR) is the administrative home of community-engaged teaching and research at Duquesne University. The Center supports and networks faculty, students, and community partners.  It does so by:

  • Stewarding the civic and justice-oriented nature of CETR as framed by the University's Spiritan charism;

  • Encouraging faculty to learn about and appreciate CETR, and to join a network of faculty peers who consider themselves to be community-engaged scholars;

  • Equipping faculty to practice innovative CETR through consultations, professional development programming, grants, logistic support, and in-print and web-based resources;

  • Introducing faculty to local communities and facilitating connections between faculty and community organizations;

  • Creating opportunities for students to gain leadership experience by supporting classes taught using CETR;

  • Helping faculty, students, and community partners navigate the University's administrative policies, procedures, and expectations so that they can successfully implement CETR; and

  • Advocating for the institutionalization of CETR and converging stakeholders to shape engagement at Duquesne.
