Brackmann Leads Community-Based Learning at Georgia Tech

Sarah Brackmann

Sarah Brackmann (McBee PhD) recently returned to the Georgia Institute of Technology as the director of community-based learning in the Office of Experiential and Engaged Learning.

Brackmann will scale, develop, implement, and support academic community engagement initiatives that align with Georgia Tech’s plan to advance undergraduate educational objectives. In this role, she will collaborate widely with community partners to provide hands-on learning experiences for students.

In discussing her new role, Dr. Brackmann states, “The Institute is a strong anchor in Atlanta and the State, and I am excited to return and continue developing undergraduate community-based learning partnerships.”

Prior to this transition, Brackmann served at Southwestern University as both the director of civic engagement and the senior director of integrative and community-engaged learning. She had previously served as the assistant director of student involvement for community service at the Georgia Tech. Brackmann’s dissertation (2012) focused on community engagement programs at land-grant institutions.

In 2010, the Georgia Association of Women in Higher Education awarded Brackmann with the Louise McBee Scholarship for her leadership in the field. Her dissertation (2012) focused on community engagement programs at land-grant institutions.
