A Zine about Students as Partners

A few months ago I was lucky enough to land a spot on the ZBoard – the editorial board of the Zine about Students as Partners! I serve on the board with the amazing Hub Affiliates Maya Barak and Mike MacDonald and super smart student editors Christopher Thomas, Zenon Sommers, and Samuel Bellaire. And I’m so excited to let you all know that we are on the precipice of the launch of our first volume and want to tell you about Launch Week!

What is the Zine about Students as Partners?

Well it is what it sounds like but let me quote from the project itself:

“A Zine About Students as Partners” is a participatory project extending beyond the classroom to showcase the collaborative work of students, faculty, and staff at the University of Michigan-Dearborn through the biannual publication of a zine. The zine is a collaborative endeavor, run by and featuring the content of students, faculty, and staff in academic and other creative mediums. The zine promotes the “students as partners” philosophy among our campus community, highlights the impressive collaborations and partnerships that already exist on our campus, and encourages students, faculty, and staff to experiment with new and innovative models in teaching, learning, and the production of knowledge.

This first issue is chock full of great articles from UM-D faculty and students written in partnership and along a variety of topics with awesome visuals!

Launch Week

Next week, physical copies will start making their appearances on the UM-D Campus. You can stop by the UC on Thursday the 10th from 11am to 3pm and pick up a copy. In addition you can stop by the Mardigian Library where a few copies will be hanging out at the front desk but if you want to have more fun we have hidden some copies in the stacks! Check out these call numbers in the library to find copies of the Zine hidden away!
