The Ginsberg Community of Practice (CoP) is geared toward community-engaged faculty, staff and graduate students. We will focus on developing and refining course-based and program curriculum and working with students and community partners to develop equitable and impactful partnerships. We will highlight anti-racist approaches that seek to make visible and challenge hidden curriculum and harmful practices that fail to address white supremacy.

We aim for this community to support participants by offering opportunities to make connections, share resources, address challenges and offer strategies to each other. As a group, we will choose from Campus Compact’s competencies to focus our work together.
