How best might our academic experiences at UCSB be both guided and deepened by community engagement and practice? As the title suggests, this panel will be informed by an inquiry into opportunities students at UCSB have for engaging in building community in relationship with others. This includes, of course, outreach, but potentially also fostering communities on campus.

Zenzile Riddick is a second-year student majoring in Sociology and Black Studies, and is the Program Director of the Black Student Union. Katie Walker is a fourth-year student majoring in Anthropology and Theater with a community emphasis, and is the Artistic Director of City of Peace, a theater program for 13 – 19 year olds. Jonathan Gomez is a Doctoral Candidate in Sociology with emphasis in Black Studies, and is a Co-facilitator of the Transformative Pedagogy Project. Jasmine Kelekay is a Doctoral Student in Sociology with an interest in race and racism, punishment and social control, critical criminology, policing, global African diaspora, Black Europe, among other things.
