Toward "Democratic Engagement":

Reciprocity, critical reflection, civic learning, and collective capacity-building
Facilitated by Dr. Patti Clayton


Service-learning (SL). Community based research (CBR). Community based learning (CBL). Whatever our practice and whatever we call it, we share an underlying commitment to inquiry, learning, and change in the context of partnership between community and campus.

In this interactive session we will examine our own and other examples of community-campus engagement using several conceptual frameworks that call our attention to the purposes, processes, and identities that ground this work--in particular drawing on "democratic engagement"

(Saltmarsh, Hartley, & Clayton, 2009; Jameson, Clayton, & Jaeger, 2011).
We will reflect both individually and collaboratively on our current practice, identify specific possibilities for enhancing its democratic orientation, consider associated challenges and trade-offs, and leave the session with concrete steps we will each take to deepen our community-campus engagement efforts.
Who should attend: Faculty, Staff, Students, Community Partners
