Ethnic Studies was born out of community demand and community engagement has had a central place in the work of the department that this year is celebrating its 50th anniversary at UH Mānoa. With this poster faculty from Ethnic Studies share some of the department’s diverse assessment methods and improvement initiatives and strategies in the field of civic and community engagement – from specific departmental learning objectives and analysis of reflection products to focus groups and surveys. They also address a survey of faculty involvement and innovative professional development strategies – as well as special measures taken during the current pandemic. By Richard Rath & Ulla Hasager
