For almost 40 years, I have had the privilege of working at the University of Maryland and at all types of colleges and universities to advance purposeful learning, community engagement, and student success.  My current scholarship and practice are in the areas of high-impact educational practices with a primary focus on service-learning, civic engagement, critical reflection, and the on- and off-campus partnerships that underlie this work.  My roots are in services, programs, advocacy, and research on behalf of college students, particularly the vast majority who live off campus.

Through Barbara Jacoby Consulting, I enjoy sharing what I have learned through my extensive research and practice with faculty, administrators, students, and community partners across the U.S. and internationally.  I have engaged colleagues in hundreds of keynote addresses, workshops, and strategic planning sessions and have provided consultation to more than 70 colleges and universities.

I develop each workshop, speech, and consultation specifically to meet your needs.  Please let me know how I can partner with you and your colleagues to benefit your students, your communities, and your institution.
