The effects of COVID-19 have reached every part of the globe, and this working group will examine university civic engagement strategies across the world for recovery and resilience. This group will explore different types of “resilience” (economic, political, social, cultural) in relation to pandemic recovery, and document the ways students and communities respond and adapt to public health and related crises.
This working group will discuss strategies to address disparities in opportunity and discrimination due to gender. These conversations will highlight the role of gender in the policy and practices of universities as well as the role of universities and students in advocating for gender equity in collaboration with local leaders and community partners.
Individuals must consider multiple perspectives to work together to address societal problems and take collective action. This working group will explore controversial issues, a range of information about the issue, and discuss several possible actions. The group will examine the benefits of public deliberation – a structured approach for having productive conversations.
This working group will consider the future of learning, teaching, and research and ways universities can be active and positive forces in their communities. Students in this working group will discuss how they successfully connect their academic interests to real world issues as well as the systemic barriers that hinder their efforts to collaborate with communities.
