Make a Gift
Together, we are a community in action
activate – transitive verb, (ˈak-tə-ˌvāt) : to make active or more active
active – adjective, (ˈak-tiv) : characterized by action rather than by contemplation or speculation
action – noun, (ˈak-shən) : a thing done
In the realm of education we are asked to contemplate. We are asked to speculate, to hypothesize, to theorize. Yet, it is the putting of those contemplations and speculations into action – into the state of activation – that they are tested, proven, given credence.
Antiochians have always been known by their actions. Their lives are anchored in individual and collective works and their meaningful contributions to society. It is a transitive verb – maybe a transient mode – embracing existence, reliant on action. The College takes ideas from our classes, labs, and offices into the community and into the world where they are tested, challenged, and strengthened through experience and collaboration.
Illustrated in the Antioch tradition of Community Governance, community is not merely observational. Community is participatory. A community is formed, bonded, and strengthened by collective action. It is the many hands, engaged in meaningful work together, lifting a load and lessening the burden that a few may carry, distributing it across many.
To activate Antioch is to make active, or more active, the members of this incredibly powerful and unique community. You may find yourself in consideration and reflection of what will become of the world. Who will steward the changemakers engaged in the vital work of justice our broad communities require?
Our response to you: be characterized by action rather than by contemplation or speculation.
You are a member of the Antioch community. Let us act – and activate – together!
