Beyond Inclusion: Education for Civic Participation and Engagement

Dr. Bryan Dewsbury re-examines the role that a liberal, inclusive, and equity-minded higher education can play in creating and sustaining a socially just society. He considers the behaviors, attitudes, mindsets, and strategies that create classrooms where students are prepared to be active participants in an evolving democracy. Agnostic to discipline, this pedagogy asks us to reconsider teaching as a humanistic enterprise, and as an explicit cultivation of developing empathetic and agentic students.
