Film Synopsis

Ticking The Box? “Community Engagement” Within The American Higher Education System

This film asks about the nature of community engagement and what it looks like in practical terms? What is the role of Colleges in engaging with schools and does this engagement always help? Through interviews with academics, teachers, policy makers, members of the community and others with an interest in education we try to get to the core of the issues. Often this type of material is the topic of books and articles but our film aims to make it ‘human,’ by showing the thoughts and emotions of those who are affected by decisions an actions of others.
