Welcome to The Assembly! We are a graduate student run journal of education committed to creating a space online for all stakeholders in education to share their perspectives on the field with each other. We publish publicly oriented articles and dialogue essays once per semester written by scholars, teachers, family members, students, and other members of the field of education. We also aim to facilitate greater communication between these different members through active use of social media.
Join the Community Making Day
As part of our Voices at the Table series and in celebration of art as public scholarship, The Assembly is highlighting the upcoming Community Making Day. Jasmine Baetz, a MFA student at CU Boulder, is leading a collaborative opportunity for community members to create a work of art together. In celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, GSCC (Graduate Students of Color Coalition) along with UMAS y MEXA (United Mexican American Students y Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlán) and BSA (Black Student Alliance), are holding a second 2020 Community Making Day (on February 22, 2020) to create a second mosaic sculpture for Los Seis de Boulder (and other related projects soon to be announced!). Come learn more about the project and the important history that surrounds Los Seis, and bring your ideas about how we can create public art that reflects the contributions and sacrifices of communities of color in Boulder.
