The University of Guelph has a strong and varied tradition of working with civil society in research, teaching and service. Through international development studies, community- university engaged scholarship from local to global, and numerous other civic engagement activities, we see faculty, staff and students working closely with civil society organizations for community benefit. A series of conversations on how the university can better work with and contribute to civil society locally and globally are now being hosted. University and community members are exploring ideas, providing expertise and experience, and responding to key issues to inform work to build a “school for civil society” that provides new pathways for teaching, learning, research and service. The overall purpose of these dialogues is to engage in discussions that help to:
• Broaden and deepen thinking on the meaning of civil society and the linkages between the universities and civil society sectors
• Engage university constituents in a process of imagining how the University of Guelph can move in a direction of greater engagement
• Engage community, civil society organizations and individuals to inform and partner in building greater opportunities for teaching, learning and engagement
• Provide vision and key directions for a new school for civil society that re-imagines international development, community engaged scholarship and civic engagement.
