There are a number of trainings and conferences surrounding topics of community engagement, service learning, and social justice.
Equity Based Service-Learning Toolkit - is designed to provide students and faculty with guidance and resources on diversity, inclusion, and access around creating equitable service experiences. This toolkit acknowledges that there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to incorporating an equitable perspective into service, however, we believe that the six strategies in the toolkit can help better identify where inequities exist within your organization and/or service experiences, the consequences of those inequities on the organization and the community, and the factors within your organization and/or service experiences that perpetuate those inequities.
