Community Engagement 101

Towards more just teaching and collaborating

Community Engagement 101 is a proposed introductory curriculum for faculty and TA/Teaching Fellow graduate students across The New School (TNS) who incorporate external engagement or partnership as a part of their syllabus. The curriculum hopes to fill a known gap in the teaching and learning of an institution which so explicitly claims an interest, and strength, in engaging with external communities in an ethical and equitable manner. The team is currently comprised of Evren Uzer (PI), Cynthia Lawson Jaramillo, Michele Kahane, and Angelica Calabrese, with contributions from Masoom Moitra, Callan Hajosy, Maanasa Sivashankar and Fareeha Shah. The project is funded by the Innovation in Education Fund (2019) and Student Research Assistant Fund from the Provost’s Office, The New School and supported by The New School Collaboratory.

Here, you will find some of the resources that we have developed, including:

  • Research summaries 
  • Faculty presentations of their courses and community engagement experiences
  • Sets of reflections and prompts to consider before developing community-engaged courses
  • Collected readings and resources on facilitation and anti-oppression pedagogy
