Series Community Engagement in Higher Education

The monopoly of place-based institutions controlling the college experience has been fundamentally shattered. Demographic changes, market pressures, and technological advancements have put into doubt the value proposition of traditional postsecondary pathways. This raises a host of questions: to what extent and in what ways does this impact the future of civic and community engagement in higher education? Does online learning undermine the raison d'être of community-based models of teaching, learning, and research? How does civic learning as a deeply labor-intensive practice continue to have resonance in an automated, machine-driven pedagogical environment? What happens to service-learning as a critical, justice-oriented, and disruptive pedagogical practice in an online learning environment? This book provides an examination of these issues through chapters devoted to theoretical issues and important case studies, as well as responses and dialogues from a variety of perspectives.
