UW-Madison's Bianca Baldridge is and will always be a youth worker. ​But she serves another role, as a community-based educator. An assistant professor in the School of Education, Baldridge teaches in the Department of Educational Policy Studies. She was selected as a recipient of a 2019 Distinguished Teaching Award and is the inaugural recipient of the Excellence in Community-based Learning award. “You have to establish relationships and that’s a lot of work,” Baldridge says. “It’s not just about developing a syllabus and teaching it but going out there to develop relationships with community partners and finding what their strengths, priorities, and needs are.”
