Abstract

NAN ALAMILLA BOYD AND JILLIAN SANDELL In 2011, the National Women Studies Association (NWSA) joined a national conversation about civic engagement by publishing what has come to be known as the Teagle White Paper (Orr "Women's"). In this document a panel of women's studies scholars make the case that women's studies, as a field, has been developing pedagogical approaches that look very similar to the work currently being advocated in national educational reform movements. Women's studies, as a result, can (or, perhaps, should) be considered a vital resource for scholars and, more importantly, administrators looking to infuse campus life with civically engaged curriculum. The national movement aimed at jump-starting the civic purpose of colleges and universities started in the mid-1980s, when a handful of university presidents founded a coalition (Campus Compact) that supported and promoted civically engaged practices and programs (Hartley; Musil). As Matthew Hartley notes in a review of the movement, curriculum reform was central to this effort, but community service or the integration of community-based activities into university coursework was equally important (12). Bridging campus and community, or theory and practice, has long been a critical component of women's studies, especially at San Francisco State University,
