Utilizing Disruption as an Opportunity: A Comparative Case Study on the Impact of COVID-19 on Community Engagement Partnership Formation

December 15, 2020


This article will focus on the implications and creative possibility catalyzed by the COVID-19 pandemic and reinvigorated racial justice movement on infrastructure that seeks to build transformational community-engaged teaching and research partnerships. Pulling from existing literature around critical service-learning and the wisdom of scholars from the Black, Indigenous, Person of Color (BIPOC) community, it will discuss the ways in which these lasting changes will propel both our institution’s structures for responsible community engagement forward, as well as inform the field’s focus on antiracist community engagement.
