The Urgency and Opportunity of Now: Social Justice Service-Learning
Duke Service-Learning is excited to welcome back Dr. Tania Mitchell, an internationally recognized scholar on community engagement and higher education. Her work on critical service-learning has been instrumental to our mission of promoting social equity and social change in community-engaged experiences. This visit will focus on challenging our understanding of ways service-learning and community-engaged work can respond to critical community issues as we navigate the challenges of the current moment. Dr. Mitchell's close proximity to the site of George Floyd's death, just three blocks from her home, is informing her scholarship and experiences with community-engaged work. In her talk, she will share how she and her neighbors are transforming George Floyd Square into a place of activism and healing. All are welcome.
