In this chapter, we offer, instead of an updated definition, a (re)envisioning of student-staff partnership. Keeping in the (non)tradition of this collection in inviting creative genres, this (re)envisioning was created through poetic transcription. The “dataset” we used to create this transcription were the words of our authors in this edited collection—drawing on and riffing off their insightfulness. In this way, we incorporated the voices and wisdom of not only the 51 authors writing here, but also the authors who came before them whose voices powerfully shaped their/our partnership thinking, writing, and practices.
