Provost's Advisory Board for Academic Community Engagement

The Provost's Advisory Board for Academic Community Engagement supports the Center for Service Learning in enhancing and promoting service learning at Western Carolina University.  Specifically, the Board reviews service-learning initiatives, recommends pertinent policies and procedures, and promotes reciprocal relationships among campus and community stakeholders.

Chaired by Rick Westerman, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Macon/Jackson County, the 15-member Board is composed of faculty, staff/administrators, students, and community partners.  The 2015-2016 Board consists of five faculty members, four administrators, two students, and four community partners.

The Center for Service Learning is an academic and administrative support unit of the Office for Undergraduate Studies and a major contributor to the implementation of the University’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP).  The award-winning Center also functions as the coordinating unit for campus–community partnerships, which provide a foundation for civic engagement initiatives throughout the western North Carolina region and beyond.
