Antioch Engaged is a website with a mission to document, highlight, and amplify the work of Antioch students as they embark on co-ops and enriching global and transnational engagements. Antioch Engaged shows the diverse stances Antioch students take up in the profound professional world– shining a light on issues that affect our immediate surroundings and the world beyond our humble village— and how Antiochians work to instigate the change we need.
Antioch Engaged producers play a fundamental role in identifying student stories from the field, producing the digital content, and curating student research that arises from faculty-mentored field work. By forming correlations and observing connections that span from our college grounds to the external world, Antioch Engaged producers seek to lace together the profound dialogue of student experience on co-op.
The students on board:
Nina Aisa, Class of 2024, Co-op Media Specialist
Nina Aisa is tasked with writing content for the Antioch Engaged website, constructing methods for updating social media platforms, and curating information that demonstrates Antioch’s stance within social and global issues. Beyond her work, Aisa enjoys creating films for spoken word poetry pieces and is a self-designed major that is a cross between International Affairs and Journalism through the lens of Documentary Film making; she hopes to someday aid the liberation of the world by capturing it on film!
