Maqsood Mahmud, Hoda M. Abo Alsamh, Mohd Anuar Arshad, Arshad Mahmood, Bala Raju Nikku.


University Community engagement (UCE) has been an integral part of previous outbreaks such as Ebola, Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), Middle East Respiratory MERS etc. However, there is apprehension about the dearth of community participation and bottom-up methods that have been applied so far in the COVID-19 responses. Understanding how community engagement methods have been used in previous epidemics can assist a more vigorous response to COVID-19 pandemic. The study examines the effective training programs for university students in promoting UCE. This study reviewed training programs on three interrelated human behavioral practices: rational, emotional, and spiritual. The effects of rational, emotional, and spiritual education on university students have been studied to foster UCE. Recent literature shows that university students play a positive role in community engagement, but students have less interest or are unable to engage in community. The main objective of the study is to comprehend the level of student’s involvement in UCE practices in the perspective of training courses offered to the students.

Key words: University Community Engagement, COVID-19 Pandemic, Training, Change Agents, Technology
