Developing a Strategic Approach to Social Responsiveness at the University of Cape Town, South Africa
Favish, Judith; McMillan, Janice; Ngcelwane, Sonwabo V.
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v16 n4 p37-59 Oct 2012
Collaborative community-engaged scholarship has roots in many parts of the world, and engaged practitioners and researchers are increasingly finding each other and sharing resources globally. This article focuses on a "social responsiveness" initiative at the University of Cape Town. Its story, told here by three University of Cape Town colleagues, illustrates the possibilities and complexities of this work in southern Africa. While strongly contextualized there, it also illustrates how the University of Cape Town has both benefited from and contributed to the broader international discussions taking place through TRUCEN (The Research University Civic Engagement Network), the Talloires Network, and other means. (Contains 1 figure and 1 endnote.)
