Civic Engagement at The New School

Steve Zehentner:  Direction, Edit, 2nd Camera

What is civic engagement? How can students engage with communities outside their classrooms and create an exchange that is respectful and mutually beneficial? What happens when an powerful institution creates programs that are designed to help those who are considered underprivileged? This documentary engages these complicated questions as New School students participate in two distinct programs: I Have a Dream After School Theater Program and a Study Abroad Program in Cambodia.

The New School is a leading progressive university in New York City offering some of the nation's most distinguished degree, certificate, and continuing education programs in art and design, liberal arts, management and policy, and the performing arts.
