Community engagement is an integral component for the development and practice of high level cognitive skills that are introduced in the classroom. Assessment of community engagement in curricular or co-curricular activities can be abstract. A model for assessing public health community engagement activities within a liberal arts framework and the use of a standard professional practice measure can provide the structure needed to assess student critical thinking skills. In this presentation, faculty and students will present how community engagement in a liberal arts college is increasing public health students' critical thinking and communication abilities. Description and assessment of community engagement activities in obesity prevention and sexual health will be discussed.
