Beyond Discourse to Emancipatory Action: Lessons from an Undergraduate
Pasque, Penny A.; Neubauer, Hailey
About Campus, v18 n2 p10-19 May-Jun 2013
One undergraduate's transformational story of self-discovery and personal development frames this discussion of the importance of undergraduate involvement in social justice research. In this article, the authors first share a bit about the national landscape regarding community-university engagement initiatives. They also share research findings that are instructive to higher education and student affairs professionals engaged in regular dialogues and programs that work to make change on campus and in local communities. Finally, they offer a call to action to the White House to tangibly follow up on some verbal initiatives they have mentioned in a way that might help foster campus engagement initiatives in a sustainable manner. They hope this information is useful to administrators and undergraduates as they work to move beyond discourse to emancipatory social action as local community members and as a larger nation.
