A journal of social practice & professional engagement for the Antioch community

Antioch College students spend up to a 1/3rd of their undergraduate experience in the real world— testing concepts and applying theory from the classroom while reflecting on what it means to lead an impactful life.

Welcome to the Antioch College journal of engagement and social practice, where we share student stories from the field and highlight Antiochians working in local and global communities.
