The Russian/American Symposium on Teaching Civic Engagement Teaching

The Russian/American Symposium on Teaching Civic Engagement Teaching supported by N. I. Lobachevsky,Nizhni Novgorod University,Nizhni Novgorod, Russia, and Spring Arbor University, Spring Arbor, Michigan, U.S.A. occurred November 8 to November 14, 2009 for the purpose of determining how to teach students to engage in civic responsibility. The above symposium resulted from support of Rector Chuprunov, Lobachevsky University, and President Web, Spring Arbor University, in signing a mutual agreement of cooperation. In 2009, Dr. James Coe, dean of the Gainey School of Business after speaking at an international conference at N. I. Lobachevsky Nizhni Novgorod University, agreed with Rector Chuprunov that a NNU delegation composed of Finance, Sociology, and Social Work faculty may exchange ideas regarding civic engagement pedagogy with SAU faculty from similar disciplines. The Deans from the named disciplines, Dr. Naomi Larsen and Dr. James Coe, coordinated the symposium to take place at SAU. The fifteen Russian delegates were housed at the Michindoh Conference and Retreat Center in Hillsdale, Michigan. The symposium sessions occurred at the Conference Center and on the main campus of Spring Arbor University. Each attending delegate gave a paper on civic engagement. The resulting outcomes focus on areas both Russian and American faculty members want to continue or begin: Professors – Need: incorporate social responsibility into the curriculum; Response: NNU join U.N. PRME, utilize PRME objectives and values; develop curricula for social responsibility to be used in many schools. Write Russian social responsibility textbook; exchange faculty to support writing of text and curricula.
