What We’re Reading: New Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement Issue

We recommend reading the latest issue of the Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement (JHEOE), a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal  published by the University of Georgia. JHEOE is dedicated to advancing theory and practice related to outreach and engagement between higher education and communities.

Journal of Higher and Education Outreach and Engagement HeaderIn the latest issue, volume 21, No. 2, JHEOE authors address opposing perspectives on the purpose of engagement and tensions and contradictions in the relationships between communities and universities, among many other topics. Authors view community engagement from multiple conceptual perspectives, including community-based learning, collaborative relationships and faculty development and engagement as a strategy for justice. The reflective essays, research articles, projects, and book reviews in this issue provide new insight into challenges and explore problems to an even greater depth.

The journal is available here.

What We’re Reading: New Partnerships Journal Issue

Partnerships: A Journal of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement

Read the latest edition of Partnerships: A Journal of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement, North Carolina Campus Compact’s peer-reviewed, online journal, hosted by the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

This spring 2017 issue of Partnerships offers new perspectives and research on enduring matters for service-learning scholars and practitioners.  Three articles tackle distinct areas of concern: co-curricular service to complement academic service-learning; international service-learning, and, curriculum development using a cross-sector team that does not adhere to traditional hierarchies. In addition, three book reviews confront the “why” of our engaged work even as we regularly strive to disseminate the best possible practices within engaged scholarship.

The journal is available online here.
