Starting in the Fall of 2020, students in CMP 200 with Professor Andrew Vogel at Kutztown University began studying and writing about wicked problems, not just issues, but the kinds of problems that demand deep, intersectional, interdisciplinary research and creative-critical thinking to begin to understand, much less address. Our research and writing are meant to reach beyond the classroom and engage with the world in real ways. This commons is intended as a space to share research, ideas, and dialogue to promote engagement with shared problems in our world.
