FR7.15.06 Getting Back to Our Roots: How to Develop and Sustain Community Engagement in Urban Affairs/Studies Academic Programs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The purpose of this Breakfast Roundtable is to discuss how students, faculty, and universities can become more engaged with the larger community/city. So how do we move from theory to practice? What are the challenges? What kinds of community engagement are most successful? And what kinds of relationships and institutional supports are critical to develop and sustain community engagement? A second goal of this roundtable will be to explore the possibility of developing a colloquy or panel session on this topic for the UAA conference in Toronto. The discussion leaders both administer and teach in an urban studies academic program, and have been connected to, in varying degrees, a variety of community engagement activities in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
