Crisis in Ukraine: What is our role as civic and global educators? March 15, 4:00 – 5:30 EST
Campus Compact initiated a conversation on Ukraine featuring a partnership with the Collaborative. Compact invites a conversation focused on responding currently and proactively to support the global human rights movement and the immediate crisis. As a group, we will envision and compile ways that institutions and individuals can offer support immediately and in the long term.The discussion will be moderated by Eric Hartman, Executive Director of the Haverford College Center for Peace and Global Citizenship and co-founder of the Collaborative, and include the voices of attendees as well as panelists including: Diya Abdo, Professor of English at Guilford College and Founder of Every Campus a RefugeShelley Inglis, Executive Director of the University of Dayton Human Rights Center and an accomplished practitioner of human rights law, working with the United Nations in the Balkans, Turkey, Croatia, and Bosnia and HerzegovinaMichael Shipler, Vice President, Strategy and Program Quality for Search for Common GroundChat will be moderated by Sarah Stanlick, Assistant Professor in the Department of Integrative and Global Studies and the Director of the Great Problems Seminar at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. The registration process also provides an opportunity to share what you are doing and resources you are utilizing or generating-even if you can’t attend the event please consider submitting so we can collect and disseminate back to the network. Register here. 

Like you, we are watching the crisis in Ukraine and seeking insight, answers, and opportunities for productive civic action.

Registering for the Campus Compact event above triggers an opportunity to share resources; those resources will be mobilized through the event. For now, we note we appreciated the comprehensive overview of related state, market, and civic change in Sunday’s NYTDuncan Green’s Poverty to Power blog has assembled a list for Ukraine reading, and the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public and International Affairs assembled a panel on the power politics and humanitarian crisis of the moment.

Simultaneously, YES! Magazine has profiled how Unarmed Ukrainians changing road signs, blocking tanks, and confronting the Russian military are showing their bravery and strategic brilliance. Global educators will appreciate Duolingo’s post: Language Matters: What Learners Need to Know about Ukraine.
