Webinar: Meet the Authors: Reframing Community Engagement in Higher Education – Feb 29

Posted by LEAD California on January 23, 2024

This timely book, Reframing Community Engagement in Higher Education, edited By Elena Klaw, Andrea Tully,  and Elaine K. Ikeda, addresses assumptions and challenges inherent within community engagement as a catalyst for developing students’ sense of civic responsibility at a time of rampant social polarization.

Promoting academic development and life skills through the high-impact practice of service-learning, the book explores a new ecological framework for reflecting on and improving practice. This book describes new models, offers advice on coalition building, and presents the narratives of community-engaged professionals and faculty, offering a sense both of tensions inherent in this work and examples of initiatives in local contexts. Chapters primarily reflect on what action is required for fulfilling our public purpose and what’s holding us back.

This book provides guidance, examples, and benchmarks for best practices in community engagement that are particularly relevant to this time of crises and unrest and will be relevant to community-engaged professionals, higher education faculty, and college administrators.

Please join us for a conversation with the book editors and authors on Thursday, February 29, 2024, 12:00-1:30 PM.
