All too often educators rush to make service and justice activities fit learning goals and the academic calendar. Often educators’ busy lives overlook the critical need to learn about the strengths and challenges of the wider community. It is for this reason that Seattle University recently began offering local immersion experiences for faculty and staff. These multi-day intensive experiences give participants a chance to understand the context of community issues in order to form ethical and effective community partnerships. This chapter draws upon four methods of data collection to show successes, challenges and a few surprising results from six local immersions.
