Expanding the Boundaries of Boundary-spanning
Join us for the 10th annual, Outreach and Engagement Practitioners Network (OEPN) preconference workshop as we challenge ourselves to further expand our boundary-spanning abilities in today’s higher education landscape.
In response to OEPN member demand for extending our 2017 conversations around critical engagement and equity, the 2018 workshop will feature Dr. Tania Mitchell, Assistant Professor of Higher Education at University of Minnesota and Tawanna Black, Executive Director for Northside Funders Group.
Tania D. Mitchell is an internationally recognized community engagement scholar and will detail her work on critical engagement and equitable practices in community engagement, including a racial justice audit of service learning syllabi. She will lead us in a discussion to help us explore ways we can transfer these principles to our own community engagement professional work as well as advocate with faculty, students, and administration for improvement.
Tawanna Black is a nationally recognized thought leader known for influencing, inspiring and equipping cross-sector leaders to transform a personal conviction for equality into actions that produce equitable and thriving communities. Tawanna will share frameworks and strategies that may be applied and replicated by campus-community partnerships towards common social impact goals. Drawing from her experience working with a variety of organizations, she will offer participants insights into the benefits of working through a collective impact model for sustainable change while also shedding light on the potential pitfalls and challenges that could be faced in the process.
