This is an intensive five-day workshop. To register for this intensive workshop, please register on part 1 of 5.
Service at Princeton University is about responding to the needs of the world. In response to persistent, recent, and continuing acts of racism, the John H. Pace, Jr. '39 Center for Civic Engagement launched Princeton RISE (Recognizing Inequities and Standing for Equality), an anti-racist grant initiative this past summer. We are continuing the learning, exploration, advocacy, and action during Wintersession through a media and dialogue club. Participants will engage with a variety of sources from books and podcasts to community partners and their peers on topics like digital activism, mutual aid networks, and how we tell our history. We will host daily reflection, dialogue and media sessions.
What to expect:
Participants will receive a variety of resources about racial justice. Each day of the week long club will be themed around a topic and participants will have small group meetings to discuss and reflect on the topics. Small group meetings may also consist of guest community partners, viewings of media like TED Talks, TV shows, and music.
Meet the facilitator:
The Pace Center for Civic Engagement is a space for supporting service as a guiding principle for all Princetonians. At the Pace Center, we believe that service is most powerful when viewed less as an activity or box to check, and more as a guiding lens to shape decision-making and pursue a meaningful life. We believe that learning and service go hand-in-hand. That supporting student ideas leads to self-discovery. That students can make an intentional difference at Princeton and beyond when they explore their relationship to the world. We believe in humility and accountability. We believe in community partnerships that are respectful and purposeful. And we believe in the multidimensional nature of student leadership.
