Keynote announced!

Keith Morton is Professor and Chair of Public and Community Service Studies, and Director of the Feinstein Institute for Public Service at Providence College. He has worked in the areas of community development, community service and
community history for more than 30 years. Prior to joining Providence College in 1994, he worked as program and then executive director of the University of Minnesota YMCA, which runs intensive service learning programs for 500 participants each year; and as director of Campus Compact’s national Project on Integrating Service with Academic Study. He serves on the boards of several local and national organizations, including the Providence-based Nonviolence Institute, dedicated to improving the quality of life for people in their communities, and is particularly interested in youth, nonviolence and the ecological and economic dimensions of community engagement. He works regularly as a workshop leader and trainer for education and community-based organizations. His teaching and scholarship focus on how we learn from experience, on service and nonviolence as practices of community building, and on the historic and present meanings of community and service in people’s lives. Much of his work is grounded in the Smith Hill neighborhood of Providence. His book, Getting Out: Youth Gangs, Violence and Positive Change, will be published by the University of Massachusetts Press in August, 2019.
