The Over-the-Rhine Residency Program continues to be an exemplary model that integrates community engagement and active citizenship. Students are transformed by this program in powerful and long-lasting ways. They learn the skills to analyze current reality, welcome complexity, and to engage in productive conversations, all of which are vital to a theory of citizenship that fronts the questions, citizenship for what? Whose interests matter? And what value-laden theories of society do forms of community engagement presuppose?
This section presents the reflections of each year’s cohort.
