Platforms and Pathways in Service Learning
Service Learning (SL) at the University of Cincinnati, the birthplace of the Cooperative Education, is an experiential learning opportunity offered to students in more than 300 courses across the university. Over 5000 students participate each year in courses which combine student reflection and structured participation in community-based projects to achieve specified learning outcomes as part of an academic course and/or program requirement.
The vision of this Pathway is to create a destination of curated, peer reviewed open access content to inspire dialogue and sharing of interdisciplinary SL innovation. We invite SL faculty and university administrators everywhere to comment on individual resources on the Platform, and use, adapt and share them at your home institution. To share back, please contact Elizabeth Scarpelli, Director, UC Press & Library Publisher Services (CLIPS)
Platforms and Pathways in Social Innovation: Racial Equity
In 2020, the United States was involved in sustained, diverse nationwide outrage the likes of which has not been seen in many areas of our country for decades. Headlines, news stories, social media and diverse voices fill the daily news. Startling images, alarming data, science, activism and uncertainty drive voices across socioeconomic groups with the hope of creating change. University press publishers participate in this movement in many ways—of note publishing intellectual output which offers clarity, disciplinary perspective and broadens the knowledge created through academic research, data, scholarly theory and original thought.
Racial Equity pathway and invite readers to engage with these open access excerpts by annotating, sharing and highlighting writing that you would like to call attention to and offer comment. Please create a Manifold account and join the dialog today.

Issues in Race and Society: An Interdisciplinary Global Journal
As the official resource of ABS, Issues in Race & Society is a double-blind, peer-reviewed academic journal. The biannual journal distinguishes itself as an interdisciplinary, comprehensive, and global examination of the increasingly racial and racialized world that connects us all. It provides a space where all voices can be heard and diverse conversations can occur about the relationship and interconnections between race, power, privilege, and location operating across cultures and societies.
