Wednesday, November 1, 2017 - 6:00pm
Penn Book Center, 130 South 34th Street

KNOWLEDGE FOR SOCIAL CHANGE (Temple University Press) by authors Lee Benson, Ira Harkavy, John Puckett, Matthew Hartley, Rita A. Hodges, Francis E. Johnston, and Joann Weeks is now available. Join Drs. John Puckett and Ira Harkavy (and possibly others) to discuss this new and exciting work on 11/1/17 at the Penn Book Center. All are welcome.

The authors of the new book, KNOWLEDGE FOR SOCIAL CHANGE, argue for fundamentally reshaping research universities to function as democratic, civic, and community-engaged institutions dedicated to advancing learning and knowledge for social change. The authors focus on significant contributions to learning made by Francis Bacon, Benjamin Franklin, Seth Low, Jane Addams, William Rainey Harper, and John Dewey—as well as their own work at Penn's Netter Center for Community Partnerships to help create and sustain democratically engaged colleges and universities for the public good.
