Living our Civic Values: Creating Inclusive, Democratic Spaces for Learning, Research, and Action
June 1 & 2, 2017
Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA
A Lehigh Valley Regional Event - Co-hosted by Lehigh University, Moravian College, and Northampton Community College with support from PA Campus Compact
Description: In the past year, political and social changes in our society are providing both challenges and opportunities. With these changes, the field of service-learning and civic/community engagement (SLCE) seems uniquely suited to respond. The question now stands: how do we best address this landscape and ensure that we continue to work towards a more just, equitable, and thriving world? Also, how do we create spaces for difficult conversations, where participants can confront opposing ideas and hold tension in productive and meaningful ways? How do we expand the circle of leadership and empower our colleagues and selves toward civic agency?
The first day of this two-day retreat led by Patti Clayton and Sarah Stanlick will address frameworks, theory, and skills for democratic engagement, dialogue, and empowerment through SLCE. The second day is a facilitated day intended to give space and support to attendees in producing tangible plans, writing, and products they might not have had a chance to complete (or the space to think about them) during the academic year. We will provide technical assistance, brainstorming support, and endless coffee to help you focus and fuel your plans for the 2017-2018 Academic Year ahead (and beyond).
