Innovative Expansion Of A University And Art Museum Partnership, Linda S. Larrivee, Joanne Gallagher Worthley, Susanna E. Meyer 2021 Worcester State University

Innovative Expansion Of A University And Art Museum Partnership, Linda S. Larrivee, Joanne Gallagher Worthley, Susanna E. Meyer

Journal of Community Engagement and Scholarship

Many universities have partnerships with community organizations. However, the focus of traditional partnerships can be limited in scope. A partnership between a university and an art museum that traditionally focused on art and humanity classes was expanded and enhanced when faculty from two different departments not usually involved with the museum created novel projects. The projects were not paternalistic/theory-testing partnerships. Rather, one had characteristics of a professional/expertise partnership and the other was an empowerment/capacity-building partnership. These projects were designed to integrate foundational learning for students into solutions to real-life problems meaningful to students, the art museum, and ...


Examining Social Capital And Whiteness In A University Community Engagement Network, Bonnie Nelson 2021 University of Washington Tacoma

Examining Social Capital And Whiteness In A University Community Engagement Network, Bonnie Nelson

Ed.D. Dissertations in Practice

University place-based community engagement initiatives often draw upon diverse stakeholders and organizations. However, these initiatives often uphold systems and structures rooted in Whiteness and oppression. Drawing from Critical Race Theory and social capital theory, this study examined Whiteness, network structure, value, and trust within the Seattle University Youth Initiative (SUYI) Network. The results suggested that the SUYI network had a moderate to high degree of value, where institutional partners were perceived as having significantly more value than nonprofit partners in the network. Additionally, the SUYI network was found to have a high degree of trust, where nonprofits were viewed as ...

Value Of Assessing Personal, Organizational, And Community Impacts Of Extension Volunteer Programs, Rebecca Harrington, Tillie Good, Kandi O'Neil, Samantha Grant, Sarah Maass, Rachelle Vettern, Patricia Mcglaughlin

Journal of Extension

Extension volunteers demonstrate personal, organizational, and community benefits. Our group of Extension professionals in the North Central Region applied these three levels of benefit to gather quantitative and qualitative data in a comprehensive evaluation of volunteer impact. Survey responses were received from 2,978 4-H youth development volunteers in 12 states. A mixed-methods approach, such as the one we used, can provide Extension professionals with evidence to communicate the value of volunteer programs and improve their practice in volunteer systems management.


Understanding Milk Consumption Habits Among College Students In Order To Redesign Outreach, Stacey F. Stearns, Adam N. Rabinowitz 2021 University of Connecticut - Storrs

Understanding Milk Consumption Habits Among College Students In Order To Redesign Outreach, Stacey F. Stearns, Adam N. Rabinowitz

Journal of Extension

College students consume less dairy milk than in the past. Increased competition in the beverage aisle influences their choices. However, much of the population is not meeting the recommended intake guidelines for calcium. A survey of undergraduate college students with university dining plans focused on milk consumption habits, beverage choices, and student attitudes toward healthful foods and nutrition. Results are guiding Extension program educational outreach campaigns to college students. By focusing on the healthful and nutritional benefits of milk, Extension educators could increase consumption among college age consumers, and their long-term healthful outcomes.


Social Change In Rural Communities: A Pilot Study Of Liberating Service-Learning With Rural Higher, Garret J. Zastoupil 2021 University of Wisconsin-Madison

Social Change In Rural Communities: A Pilot Study Of Liberating Service-Learning With Rural Higher, Garret J. Zastoupil

Journal of Community Engagement and Scholarship

This exploratory study examines how service-learning faculty and community partners affiliated with rural colleges and universities engage in a practice aligned with Stoecker’s (2016) proposed liberating service-learning framework. Findings from 10 in-depth interviews indicate the ongoing emphasis on student learning, increased interface with government leaders, local businesses, and advocacy organizations, and distinct contextual factors faced by service-learning partners in rural areas. These findings complicate Stoecker’s initial framework, which completely decenters student learning, and calls for a deeper understanding of who constitutes community, change, and power broadly and in the context of densely connected rural areas. It also places ...
