Joseph Krupczynski Recognized as Campus Compact Equity & Engagement Fellow

Joseph Krupczynski, director of the Office of Civic Engagement and Service Learning (CESL) and professor in the Department of Architecture, is being recognized as a member of Campus Compact’s 2022-23 Equity & Engagement Fellows Team. The Fellows team came together to collaborate with the Compact to produce a multi-author book, “Anti-Racist Community Engagement: Principles and Practices,” which will explore and analyze the diverse ways that anti-racist community engagement principles can be put into practice on and off college and university campuses.

To complement the book, the fellows team will help develop and facilitate a range of professional development offerings for Compact member institutions that draw from insights and principles related to the publication and further anti-racist community engagement practices on campuses.

“As part of the equity and engagement fellows team I hope that the anti-racist practices and principles outlined in our upcoming edited volume can be a part of community engaged teaching and research at UMass, as well as on campuses nationally,” said Krupczynski.

The publication and Equity & Engagement Fellows team came together after last year’s Anti-Racist Symposium held in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education. Campus Compact will partner again with the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education and UMass Dartmouth to host the 2023 Symposium on Anti-Racist Community-Engaged Pedagogy on March 31, 2023.
