UW-Parkside mentioned in higher ed publication
UW-Parkside recently received some notable kudos in a recent article of Inside Higher Ed.
Carol Geary Schneider, president emerita of the Association of American Colleges and Universities, and a senior adviser for civic learning and democracy engagement, wrote an opinion piece in the January 2022 issue on higher education’s role in civic learning and democracy.
In speaking about the challenges students face balancing college with work, family, and other obligations, Schneider specifically referenced certain colleges and universities leading the way in showing how students’ civic learning and engagement can become integral vs. optional to obtaining their degree:
"Other equity-committed institutions, like the University of Wisconsin at Parkside, have embraced both the workplace and the community as sites for college students’ projects on locally significant public questions." – Carol Geary Schneider
