This network will explore questions like the following: What kind of engaged research is happening on our campus? Are there opportunities for collaboration? How do we represent our work in our annual reviews and for APT? What would help us advance our scholarship?
In addition to sparking campus conversations, The Engaged Scholar Network is offering the Engaged Scholar Network Discussion on September 26, the Engaged Scholar Retreat on November 9, and a publication workshop in the spring.
Research University Engaged Scholarship Toolkit, Campus Compact
The purpose of the toolkit is: To add clarity to the meaning and conceptualization of community-engaged scholarship in a research university context; to provide a rationale for why to do it and resources on how to do it well; to provide tools and assistance for faculty at research universities to document engaged scholarship for reward and promotion (i.e., how to get credit for it); and to provide tools and assistance for enabling the assessment of engaged scholarship (i.e., for faculty reward and promotion).
