Summer intensive on Community Engaged Scholarship


This week-long intensive is for early career, tenure track faculty, and advanced graduate students seeking faculty or staff positions in higher education. The Summer Intensive includes interactive workshops, lunches in disciplinary clusters and with senior community-engaged scholars, site visits to community partners, and dedicated time to develop your own community engagement materials (i.e., research proposal, service-learning syllabus, promotion and tenure documents).

At the end of four and half days, participants will come away with:

  • Conceptual frameworks and scholarly resources
  • Practical partnership, collaboration, and evaluation tools
  • Perspectives from community partners on respectful, effective community engagement
  • Career advice from senior community engaged scholars about promotion and tenure
  • Plans for publishing community engaged scholarship
  • Strategies for translating university knowledge for public audiences
  • Support from a network of interdisciplinary colleagues
