This conference encourages participants to address a wide range of issues related to research, curriculum design, assess-ment, institutional support, diversity, community connection, partnerships, and student development. The goal of the conference is to provide participants with multiple perspectives on critical issues, paradigms, and challenges related to race, ethnicity and community engagement in higher education.
The conference will be grounded with three tracks; panel proposals should address one or more of these issues:
1. Critical Race Studies: Ethnic Communities and Service-Learning or other community in Higher Education
2. Praxis in Experiential Education: Best Practices for Integrating University, Community, and Students as Mutual Beneficiaries in Social Justice Efforts
3. Curriculum and Paradigms: Developing Cultural Competencies in Service-Learning, other community engagement, and Commu-nity-Based Research Curriculum
