Metropolitan Universities: The Intersection of Faith and Community Engagement at Urban Institutions

Posted by Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities on December 22, 2020

We are happy to share the latest issue of Metropolitan Universities journal, 31.3, The Intersection of Faith and Community Engagement at Urban Institutions. The articles highlight the importance of faith in developing civic responsibility, partnering with communities, and achieving our public mission.

In a year that has featured a global health pandemic, a racial justice political-social movement, and a divisive political election that stretches democratic principles, the topic of faith and community engagement may seem more prescient than ever. The exploration of the intersection of faith and community engagement at anchor institutions, though, began prior to all of these events. Yet, the topics that emerge in this special issue of Metropolitan Universities journal are even more relevant in our current context, as scholars, practitioners, and community partner co-authors explore the relationship between faith traditions and engagement in the community.
