Civic Engagement at the Center

AAC&U’s recently published monograph, Civic Engagement at the Center: Building Democracy through Integrated Cocurricular and Curricular Experiences, shares best practices in sustained community engagement from the Bonner Scholars and Bonner Leaders scholarship programs. Authors Ariane Hoy and Wayne Meisel describe compelling outcomes at seventy-seven participating campuses, each of which strives to educate students for active citizenship in a complex and interconnected world. To order the monograph, visit www.aacu.org.

What’s Race Got to Do with It?

In this California Newsreel film, producer and director Jean Cheng chronicles one class’s semester of difficult conversations at the University of California-Berkeley, where students struggle to confront the race and class divisions that persist on their elite campus. The result is an informative look at one group’s attempt to embrace diversity across difference, exploring questions of privilege, justice, and social responsibility. Cheng’s video illustrates classroom techniques and follows students as they struggle toward a paradigm shift. To order the DVD, visit www.whatsrace.org.
