MUCCE Presents: 20th Anniversary Alumni Reflections on the Residency Program

Using Tom Dutton's groundbreaking model of collaborative community engagement and place-based education, the Miami University Center for Community Engagement continues to forge opportunities for learning in cross-disciplinary and inter-cultural experiences two decades later.  This series of 20th Anniversary online events celebrate our many programs and collaborations between the community, faculty, and students.

The immersive, interdisciplinary, award-winning Residency Program brings students from all majors together in urban Cincinnati, where they take an array of courses at the Center, participate in experiential learning through placements in the community, and become familiar with policies and conditions that shape urban centers through direct contact with neighbors, who share their lived experiences.  These are experiences that cannot be recreated on campus.  We call it the “school of social life”.  Join Residency Program alumni for a discussion about the program and how it informed their paths.

Panel Guests:

  • Bonnie Neumeier, Activist, Community Liaison for the Residency Program
  • Joele Newman, Residency Program ‘17, Peaslee Neighborhood Center
  • Hayley Huge, Residency Program ‘16, Intercommunity Justice and Peace Center (IJPC)
  • Magda Orlander, Residency Program ‘16, Cincinnati Interfaith Workers’ Center (CIFC)
  • Amy Silver, Residency Program ‘07, Over-the-Rhine Community Housing (OTRCH)

This event is open to all and free to watch online, but registration is required.  If you have questions, please reach out to Mollie Young at
