Addressing Redlining Through Service Learning

Redlining impacts communities in a number of ways, but we know finding methods to reinvest time, energy, and resources in these spaces based on community priorities can address the effects of redlining. One way to do this is through service learning.

 

In alignment with UNO's Strategic Investment theme: Race, Class, Equity, and Social Justice, the SLA uses an asset-based community engagement approach to address redlining. Rather than emphasizing deficits, students in service learning courses seek to recognize and utilize the strengths already present within communities.

About Redlining

Redlining practices in the past continue to impact communities today. Even though redlining became an illegal practice in 1968, the systemic ramifications of redlining are still present. This means that redlining practices of the past continue to impact historically redlined communities today.
