The Keep-Mills Residency on Ways of Knowing is an annual residency offered to Empire State College Students. The residency gives students an opportunity to learn in a blended environment, combining online discussions, residency collaboration, and a mentor-guided final project.
This year’s residency will afford students a chance to explore questions like:
- What is powerlessness?
- What is empowerment?
- How do individuals, communities and entire societies understand its origins and respond to it?
- How are people, as individuals and as members of groups, moved to think and act in new ways?
- What inspires?
- What readies us for such empowerment?
- How can we understand powerlessness and empowerment from multiple angles — from the perspective of the psychologist, the artist, the business person, the social analyst, the educator, the historian and the community and social worker? (source: Center for Mentoring and Learning)
