There is currently an increased emphasis on social responsibility and the role of community engagement within higher education, both nationally and internationally. In light of this, universities throughout South Africa are encouraging individual departments to be more proactive in introducing research and curricula-related community engagement modules into undergraduate courses. Traditionally, owing to the nature of training for some service professions, such as the Health Sciences for example, it is easier to initiate and implement such modules into the curriculum as they lend themselves well to interaction with a community. As a lecturer at a Visual Arts department myself, I can affirm that it is quite challenging to implement a formal community engagement module, particularly for Visual Communication Design. Considering this, the book, See Kayamandi, See Yourself â?? Social Responsibility and Citizenship Project for Visual Communication Design, even before being reviewed in more detail, is already significant.
