Online Event: Centering Social Justice in Community Engagement – Feb 24

Posted by Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning on February 15, 2022

Faculty and staff across higher education are re-imagining service-learning and community engagement work in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing racial justice efforts in the last couple of years. The inequalities we are seeing make clear the need to center social justice in these efforts.

The Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning (MJCSL) in collaboration with the National Center for Institutional Diversity (NCID) at the University of Michigan published a timely special issue on Centering Social Justice in the Scholarship of Community Engagement, highlighting the opportunities and challenges of higher education civic and community engagement and ways for scholars and practitioners to move towards more just and equitable community outcomes.

On Thursday, February 24 at 4:00-5:30 PM, join MJCSL and NCID for a conversation featuring the special issue’s guest editors, who will offer insights and experience in using community engagement as a practice for achieving social justice, within higher education and beyond our institutions’ walls.
