Dr. Scot Evans along with faculty in the Department of History - lead professor Dr. Robin Bachin Assistant Provost and Director of the Office of Civic & Community Engagement, and the School of Communication – Professor Tsitsi Wahisi , supported by funds from the Teagle Foundation, created and taught a new undergraduate multidisciplinary course “Miami Engagement” that explores the Miami Community from the lens of public history, media and social change.

The course involves a significant service learning placement whereby students work with community agencies on projects that utilize media, history or community psychology skills learned in class as applied to some a specific Miami neighborhood or community organization. The course ran successfully in the spring 2015 term and will be offered again spring 2017.
