Our next dissertation, “When There’s Good, There’s Good. When There’s Harm, There’s Harm”: Diverse Voices on Community Engagement, is on April 6, 2023 from 9:00 – 10:30 AM Pacific Time.

Abstract: Service learning and community engagement (SLCE) have become near ubiquitous across U.S. higher education. While much scholarship has demonstrated positive student learning outcomes of the pedagogy and practice, there has been unequal consideration towards understanding the experiences of communities involved. Because “the community” has been largely missing from SLCE scholarship, this community-based case study, drawing on theories of whiteness and neoliberalism, aimed to engaged a multivocal account of how one community described and understood their experiences with SLCE by one college. As a result of the community knowledge and contributions shared, this dissertation aimed to (re)imagine more equitable possibilities for the future of SLCE with those who have often been left out of research.
