Community Involvement: Bridging Local and Global Communities
Community Involvement works to invigorate our critical understanding of and practice community partnership by reimagining our involvement with local and diverse communities in the area as bidirectional, open, inclusive, and integral to our liberal arts curriculum and to our development as critical global citizens.
We will re-think our roles within the communities that sustain us. We will work toward transformation of our college community by building liberatory models of thinking and being. We will see our diversity as a resource and structure-in equitable ways to share our educational wealth.
Through conscious educational and extra-curricular programming, collaboration with on and off-campus offices, entities, students, employees and residents, we will fortify our existing programs and build new ones that enable us to engage with communities as knowledge producers and partners in this process toward more empathetic and fully-realized individuals who stand against all forms of oppression.
