DEADLINE: Call for Submissions - Sharing Stories: ABCD in Higher Education

Monday, January 24, 2022 - 5:00pm

We invite faculty, staff, and students to submit stories for consideration - stories that you are particularly proud of or that you are trying to work through.

Between January and June 2022, The Asset-Based Community Development Institute will host a series of free virtual story sharing sessions on "ABCD in Higher Education." The series will showcase examples of how faculty, staff, and students at universities and colleges are intentionally doing - or trying to do - their work using an asset or strengths-based approach, within their institutions or in their work with community partners. Stories might include programs, initiatives, or short-term projects that illuminate successes and challenges. This is not limited to best practices and could include efforts that have been difficult or even, in the end, failed. 

Stories - along with associated tools and resources - will then be compiled and shared through an ABCD Institute publication, edited by the ABCD in Higher Education Work Group. All storytellers and session participants will be invited to join the work group moving forward.Each story session will feature one or two stories and will last between one and two hours. Sessions will be facilitated by a member of the ABCD in Higher Education Work Group and will be recorded, if storytellers agree, so that links can be included in the publication.
