As recipient of The Rosemary and Walter Blankley Endowed Chair in Education, Skilton-Sylvester has proposed a three-year project, “Documenting and Creating Arts-Based Local/Global Civic Education,” which will use the arts and narrative analysis to expand and understand local/global civic education at Arcadia and across community and school contexts in the Philadelphia region, the Midwest, the South, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East.
