2007 Annual PHENND Conference:
Power, Access and Equity
Friday, February 23, 2007
Gwynedd Mercy College
Colleges and universities have a profound impact on their local communities whether its the choice to build a new building or to support a service-learning program. But what about the impact higher eds make simply by choosing which students to admit? Or by their support for K-12 college access? Or how their policies promote social equity?
For the 2007 Annual PHENND Conference, we will ask these questions and explore areas of common interest between the service-learning and college access communities. How can colleges and universities be more engaged in the struggle to democratize education? How do campus-community partnerships combat (or reinforce) unjust social structures? What are the best practices in college access today?
