Multicultural service-learning and community-based research as a model approach to promote social justice
Social justice and multicultural awareness are inextricably linked (Rosner-Salazar, 64). This article calls for the use of multicultural service-learning and community-based research in curricula to train students as future “service-providers” in diverse, disenfranchised communities. To support this argument, the author highlights the importance of community-academic partnerships, describing how they promote cultural competency and create opportunities for students to apply methods and theory. The author provides examples of courses that empowered students and community members and concludes with recommendations for scholars, evaluators, educators, and activists on how to engage in communities and promote social justice.
