Description

The use of university-community (UC) links is critical to bridging the institutional cultures of the university and the community to provide program activities for local displaced youth. Different pedagogical and curricular strategies are utilized in these programs to adapt to local community cultures and practices that at times come into conflict with funders’ political and ideological agendas, including federal, state, and school district directives in designating in-school and after-school practices that are valued and therefore fundable. Universities and communities must work together to meet these challenges and adapt to work with displaced young people coming from varied cultural and linguistic backgrounds. It is critical to understand and review how institutions as well as individuals, or groups of individuals, have worked together to expand institutional culture and practice in a process of cross-institutional expansive learning.

A Cultural Historical Approach to Social Displacement and University-Community Engagement: Emerging Research and Opportunities focuses on university-community collaborative engagement as a strategic response to widespread social displacement and its implications for the educational and social development of underserved young people from displaced communities. Using a cultural historical perspective, the book offers a comparative study of collaborative engagement in multiple programs involving university and community partners in long-term efforts to address the social displacement and educational development of local young people. Specifically, it examines University-Community Links (UC Links), an international network of partnerships between universities and communities that has been addressing the educational implications of social displacement for over 20 years. This book is ideal for school faculty, students, university administrators, local community leaders, community-based organization leaders, local political leaders, teachers, and school partners, as well as researchers, practitioners, and stakeholders interested in discourse on university-community engagement in higher education, K-12, and local and state decision-making arenas.
