The Edward Ginsberg Center for Community Service and Learning

Flyer for Dewey Lecture

The Ginsberg Center’s Dewey Series recognizes the enduring legacy of philosopher and educational reformer John Dewey, who taught at U of M in the 1890’s,  and later, went on to found the New School for Social Research. Chief among Dewey’s enduring ideas were that thought is the means through which we come to understand and connect with the world around us, and, that universal education is the key to teaching people how to abandon their habits and think creatively via learning through doing.

Many thanks to all who joined us at the 2016 Dewey Lecture on April 1, 2016 at the Rackham Assembly Hall.
