The NCID and the Ginsberg Center have collaborated on a special issue of the Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning (MJCSL): Centering Social Justice in the Scholarship of Community Engagement.
Guest editors Dr. Tabbye Chavous and Dr. Tania D. Mitchell:
Many are now grappling more deeply with how institutions of higher education have been and continue to be complicit in the colonialism and white supremacy that fuel the aforementioned oppressive structures and acts; indeed, this grappling must also include the field of service-learning and community engagement (SLCE). As such, we view this special issue as an opportunity to showcase work that illustrates and reflects the positive impacts, promise, and continued challenges of higher education community engagement, in ways that prompt and support community-engaged scholars and practitioners toward more just and even more impactful contributions.
