The Participatory Action Research group and the Service Learning Committee are interested in creating a Participatory Action Research project,  internships and/or service learning projects that would be meaningful to our students and our community (Marygrove and/or the surrounding area).  To this end, we are planning a listening session with students, interested Marygrove people and community leaders to hear ideas about how we can enhance our life together.  

A listening session will be held on Wednesday, May 15th, 2013 from 6-8pm in Denk.  Light refreshments will be provided; Barbara Stanbridge, IHM, and local community activist Gwendlyn Winston-Bailehy have agreed to facilitate.  We are guided by the following:

+ Marygrove commits itself to forming urban leaders and thus must get engaged in the urban community

+ Valuable research, ideas and insights from campus and community leaders are synergetic for both arenas

+ We are offering a venue to bring together potential partners to begin exploration of how we might begin or deepen extant collaborations that will be mutually beneficial.

+ This is a concrete medium for stimulating new service learning courses, internships, PAR projects, etc.

Please RSVP to Barbara Beesley by May 7--and plan to come out and invite others who are interested in contributing to this engagement....We would love to hear your voices!
