Activist-Scholar Alliances for Social Change

The Transformative Power of University-Community Collaborations

(p.106) Chapter Six Activist-Scholar Alliances for Social Change
Transforming the Ivory Tower

David Naguib Pellow

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter presents the author's account of the social change potential of two alternative projects that bridge the gap between campus and community. He helped create the Transatlantic Initiative on Environmental Justice (TIEJ), a network that links universities, legal support centers, and community organizations in the United States and central and eastern Europe. Transatlantic Initiative on Environmental Justice produces knowledge and applies it to advance struggles for social change for disenfranchised communities in the United States and Europe. He also analyzes the collective efforts of faculty, students, and community activists to create the Activist/Scholars Dialogue (ASD). Activist/Scholars Dialogue established a nonhierarchical forum for dialogue that nourishes the social justice campaigns of community organizations and enhances learning at the University of California, San Diego.

Keywords:   social change, university–community collaboration, Transatlantic Initiative on Environmental Justice, Activist/Scholars Dialogue
