Designing and Documenting Community Engaged Teaching, Research/Creative Activities and Service Projects

Location: Faculty Commons – 116 Pearson Hall

“Universities that are not engaged with their communities in the 21st century will soon find themselves disengaged from any meaningful relevance to the citizenry of the United States” –C. Peter Magrath

Faculty and staff at the University of Delaware are the primary facilitators of engaged scholarship as they conduct their teaching, research/creative activities and service.

Please join us for a series of workshops where participants will create, implement and assess community engagement projects designed to contribute solutions to global challenges. These academic experiences will benefit faculty, students, and community partners. In addition, participants will receive resources and guidance in how to document community engaged scholarship for merit, promotion, and tenure dossiers.

Workshops will be led by Lynette Young Overby, Deputy Director of the Community Engagement Initiative and other engaged scholars.
