SEASON 2, EPISODE 18
Community Engagement in Place
Join us for a discussion of place-based community engagement initiative with Kent Koth. Kent is the founding director of the Seattle University Center for Community Engagement, where, since 2009, he has also directed the Seattle University Youth Initiative. This is a long-term commitment by Seattle University faculty, staff and students from all disciplines to join with parents, the Seattle School District, the City of Seattle, foundations, and more than 30 community organizations to provide a pathway of support for children of several local neighborhoods to succeed in school and in life. KYou can also weigh in on whether semi-organized group meals are called “potlucks” or “pitch-ins” and get some great new resources including Civic Agency Workshop resources and a free interactive platform designed to depolarize communities and foster mutual understanding across differences.

Becoming an Anchor Institution
In our nineteenth episode of the second season, Co-Host J.R. Jamison sat down with Valerie Holton and Emily Sladek, of CUMU and The Democracy Collaborative respectively, to discuss the Anchor 101 Framework, what it means to be an anchor institution, and whether or not the Higher Education Mission Initiative and the Carnegie Classification for Community Engagement are mutually exclusive. Two of our usual hosts, J.R. and Andrew, are joined this episode by guest host Marisol Morales, Campus Compact’s vice president of network leadership. The three end the episode with a quick stop off in Pop Culture Corner to talk Notorious RBG, the history behind Pride Month, and how to continue to support Puerto Rico in the continuing aftermath of Hurricane Maria.

LIVE from the 5th Global Service-Learning Summit
In this special, two-part season finale, J.R. brings us live to the Global Service Learning Summit at the University of Notre Dame. J.R. sits down with guest host Eric Hartman, Executive Director of the Center for Peace and Global Citizenship at Haverford College and the Co-Founder of globalsl.org, to discuss critiques of global service-learning and best approaches for future practice. Eric then facilitates a discussion on the same topic with panelists Janice McMillan, Marisol Morales, Richard Slimbach, and Nicole Webster. Stay with us until the end where you’ll get the chance to hear Eric’s reflections on what kind of root vegetable he would be if he had to give up his important work in global service-learning and live the rest of his life firmly planted in one place.
