Description:

In the wake of 30 years of national attention to “service” and “service-learning” in higher education, Tania Mitchell will share research on the impacts of such experiences on students and alumni, along with the challenges faculty and community partners face in traditional service learning models, with an eye toward courses and curricular models rooted in principles of social justice and social transformation.Following the framework of a critical service learning pedagogy, Dr. Mitchell will explore the barriers and opportunities to developing authentic relationships, redistributing power, and bringing attention to social change in our work as educators.

Lecture followed by catered lunch w/ small group conversation- 12:30-1:30 PM
