McMaster to offer minor in community engagement

October 31, 2016

Undergraduate students from all McMaster faculties will now be able to pursue an Interdisciplinary Minor in Community Engagement. The new minor aims to teach students the theory and principles that underpin community engagement, while providing them with opportunities to gain hands-on experience by working in a community setting. “The minor is intended to help students understand the complexity of working in communities,” says Shelia Sammon, director of community engagement who helped develop the minor. “The minor is there to support our students in being strong community members and citizens, teaching them the skills and knowledge that are going to help them make a difference in multiple communities so they can contribute in a productive way.” McMaster
