Volunteering that Hurts, Global Change Campaigns, Universities and Nonprofits

Eric Hartman  On Friday, September 25th, from 9:00 am to 10:30 am EDT, we’re hosting a free webinar, What NOT to Restart, and Opportunities Moving Forward – Global Engagement Post-COVID – and on Friday, October 16th, from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm EDT, we’re hosting Global-Local Curricular Connections and Experiential Education (also free).

Ethical Global Engagement and Large Institutions

Attendance at AAC&U’s national conference pushed me to specify the processes we have in place at Haverford College to support ethical global engagement and how those processes are distributed not only within Center for Peace and Global Citizenship staffing, but also across engaged faculty scholarship. I spent the previous fifteen years working to coordinate and support ethical engagement from and in collaboration with large R1 campuses. So I recognize how some of the opportunities I’ve been sharing can seem particular to a small liberal arts setting. I’m thinking now about the highly individualized counseling process and faculty-mentored, community-driven, engaged scholarship….

Preparing Swarthmore College Students for Ethical Engagement

By Jennifer Magee and Katie L. Price* The Eugene M. Lang Center for Civic and Social Responsibility at Swarthmore College exists, in part, to facilitate Swarthmore College’s commitment to intellectual rigor, ethical engagement, and social responsibility. Watch to learn more about who we are and what we do. Our summer grant programs—made possible through the generosity of the Swarthmore Foundation and the Eugene M. Lang Foundation—are a key way in which we help students synthesize these three areas by connecting the campus, curriculum, and communities. While we believe deeply in the power of learning by doing, we also recognize that…

Ethical Global Engagement: What do we avoid, what do we do, and how do we evaluate it?

Thursday I had the opportunity to co-present a brief session, “Models and Methods of Ethical Engagement,” at the Association of American Colleges and Universities Annual Meeting.

I ended up presenting primarily on one slice of our work at Haverford – how we prepare students for ethical engagement during summer internships. I share related resources – and some initial thinking about what we miss…

Exercise and Civic Engagement: 2 Podcasts that Deepen Thinking on Our Commitments to One Another

Eric Hartman, Haverford College & globalsl  Like many folks in professional roles, I often sit at a desk – yet I want to stay in shape. In November I upped my jogging and walking efforts in a monthly Fitbit competition that I have so far lost throughout the year. Several of the outcomes were wonderful: it forced me to identify meetings and calls that can be taken while walking (not all, but many); it got me outside more often with family members; and even though I moved in silence for several of those early morning hours, it led me through extended…

Building a Great Campus Civic Action Plan (Institute 1 – Princeton)

President Andrew Seligsohn and VP for Strategy and Operations Maggie Grove share information on creating a great Campus Civic Action Plan in this presentation from the first Civic Action Planning Institute in Princeton, New Jersey.

Multi-Year Community Engaged Programs for Students,

This reporting assignment was undertaken to describe a range of exemplary, independently managed, multi-year community engaged programs for students. Given that each program that we focus on was developed independent of one another, with its own distinctive name, origin story and characteristics, we felt it important to document the breadth of innovative practices being used to develop engaged citizens and scholars. It is the rm belief of the authors that these types of programs can and should be considered deeply by other institutions of higher education wishing to create a distinctive and engaged educational experience that will help students stand…

Reflections on Orlando and Our Work

To the members of the Campus Compact network: The murderous attack on members of the LGBTQ community earlier this week in Orlando was so shocking and horrifying that it was difficult for many of us to know what to say or do. At Campus Compact, we have all experienced the sadness and anger shared by people across the country and beyond. We have also reflected on how this event relates to our mission. In the spirit of that reflection, I share these thoughts. Beyond the devastating reality of the murder of 49 of our fellow human beings, the Orlando massacre…
