Introduction to Community Organizing for Community Engagement Professionals

August 6 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
Virtual

Community Engagement Professionals often have multiple roles, both formal and informal, many of which require them to organize others (students, other faculty/staff, community members) to advance mission, programming, and institutional change efforts. While typical training and academic preparation focuses on disciplines and project management, it overlooks our role as organizers. The goal of this training is to provide an overview of the theory and practice of community organizing as a framework and tool for activating change within and beyond campus, specifically for enhancing the work of community engagement staff and faculty. Participants will be provided a brief overview of various elements of community organizing campaigns (including identifying goals and purpose, relationship building, communicating and collaborating with stakeholders and constituents, mapping power and assets, strategizing and problem solving, and taking collective action) alongside some of the strategies and tools needed to go from conceptualization to action.  Participants will have the opportunity to convene in breakout rooms to connect with colleagues and develop ideas for…

Living Room Conversations: Coronavirus: Race in the Time of Corona

July 20 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Virtual

At this point, Race and the Coronavirus can not be separated. In our efforts to feel like we can do something to protect ourselves, some of us have succumbed to our baser instincts. This is evident in the ways some Americans have treated people of Asian descent or how people of African descent are being treated in China. By talking about race in light of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 impact on our world, we are acknowledging awareness of the importance of this continued work. As we develop our ability and capacity to communicate across differences, we also become better global problem solvers. If we can take anything from this season in history, let it be this–that we are interconnected and need one another to survive in challenging times and to thrive as a global community.

8th International Symposium on Service-Learning (ISSL)

June 9 @ 8:00 am - June 12 @ 5:00 pm
Nicosia, Cyprus

Critical Service-Learning Across the Globe: Transforming Teaching into Social Action University of Nicosia, June 9 – 12 , 2020 SYMPOSIUM PURPOSE Transformation has become a central discussion theme in the higher education landscape worldwide. Forecasts reveal that higher education institutions might become virtual entities that compete for survival, which will render face-to-face interaction of the lecture hall redundant. Out-of-classroom learning spaces will likely become more important as students will learn in their own communities. Service-learning is a transformative pedagogy that emphasizes out of classroom experiences as a learning space, the community as a textbook and where theory becomes practice. The purpose of the 8th International Symposium on Service-Learning is to focus on transitions in higher education and the role that critical service-learning plays in social transformation. One of the main areas of focus will be on student and faculty delivery of critical service-learning experiences and becoming agents of positive change for their communities and universities.
