People who serve intend to do good. But serving ethically isn’t as simple as many assume. Recognizing that paternalisms and biases embedded in our culture can undermine efforts to serve well, Christen Clougherty and Eric Hartman have both dedicated their careers to ethical partnership and pedagogy practices to advance community-campus engagement that support more just, inclusive, sustainable communities. Join these educators for an overview of challenges to ethical community engagement, but also - and vitally - systematic approaches to advancing positive campus-community partnerships across disciplines and geographies. Discuss opportunities for the full, integral development of students to align with important outcomes for communities along with the graduation of ethically-grounded and thoughtful young people. 

Your voluntary contribution in support of FAHE and this lecture series is greatly appreciated.
