New Book: Preparing Students to Engage in Equitable Community Partnerships: A Handbook

Posted by Temple University Press on December 5, 2023

After years of curriculum development and writing time, we are excited to announce the release of: Preparing Students to Engage in Equitable Community Partnerships: A Handbook, (by Elizabeth A. Tryon, Haley C. Madden, and Cory Sprinkel; Temple University Press). From their press release: “[…the book] provides a wealth of valuable resources and activities to help impart ideas of identity, privilege, oppression, bias, and power dynamics to support students and community in these relationships. Believing that authenticity only comes about in an atmosphere of mutual respect and self-awareness, the authors argue for cultural and intellectual humility.”

We include concrete classroom activities, reading resources, and vignettes by a diverse group of practitioners from large urban universities, community colleges, private colleges, HBCUs and MSIs, including  scholars Jamilah Ducar, Azuri Gonzalez, and Lena Jones.
