Campus Compact Webinar - 'Radical Imagination in Action: Re-visioning and Co-creating Community Engagement' - November 4

Please join the Civic and Community Engagement Office for the webinar "Radical Imagination in Action: Re-visioning and Co-creating Community Engagement," featuring Jocelyn Gomez, Julia van der Ryn, and Emily Wu from the Dominican University of California, on Thursday, November 4, from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. This event is presented by Campus Compact as part of its National Webinar Series and is free to members of the Buffalo State College community.

Thanks to long-term partnerships that have continued to evolve, Dominican’s service-learning program was able to work intensively with partners during the pandemic to support their programming and to co-develop new programs to address ongoing equity gaps exacerbated by the pandemic. Most crucially, the pivots and collaborations were grounded in a mutual aid and critical consciousness approach—that acknowledges both trauma and strengths of collectivist cultures and communities. Innovative programming included Leyendo Juntos—a virtual reading pod for K–grade 3 students at a Latino immigrant–serving school—and the Digital Literacy and Bilingual Support program with their cohort of heritage Spanish-speaking Dominican students that now collaborates with multiple partners. They also created and collaborated on modules and presentations for students and the broader campus community, such as the modules based on cultural humility principles (Tarvelon & Murray-Garcia, 1998). They will share their effective applications of appreciative inquiry, cultural humility principles and framing, and asset-based critical community engagement during this webinar.

Please register online for this webinar and any others in the National Webinar Series as you would like.
