Introduction: Educating for citizenship and social justice-practices for community engagement at Research Universities

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The introduction establishes the need to educate students for citizenship and social justice to develop citizens prepared to respond to the challenges of our increasingly diverse democracy. The introduction invokes three kinds of citizenship (personally responsible, participatory, and justice-oriented) to encourage a community engagement practice that disrupts students’ experiences to encourage them to take action in service of social justice. The introduction also offers brief outlines of each chapter in the book.
