A Coordinated Community Engagement Program for Faculty, Staff, and Students

IPACE is supported by University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) transformational funding and is housed in the Department of Family and Community Health at the University of Maryland School of Nursing. The program facilitates community engagement at UMB in collaboration with UMB’s Office of Community Engagement.

The focus of the program is to:

  • Develop, support, and expand educational curriculum and service-learning and community experiential learning;
  • Build community-engaged faculty scholarship and research; and
  • Support professional development related to community engagement for faculty, staff, and students.

This interprofessional initiative is inclusive of faculty, staff, students, and community partners who collaborate and envision community partnerships as a means to effect positive change and build the capacity of community-based organizations in order to improve the health and well-being of neighbors in Baltimore and beyond.
