Foundations of Community Engaged Scholarship: A panel with faculty from multiple
institutions, will be held on Dec. 9, from 9:30 to 11 a.m. via Zoom. The ACE
(academic community engagement) series is free and open to the public.
Anyone interested in learning more about community engaged scholarship is invited to attend this session which is designed to introduce new and varying perspectives of academic community engagement through representation from other institutions.
The panel will introduce participants to community engaged scholars who have created ACE partnerships with impact. Elements of strong partnerships to effectively co-create academic community engagement will be discussed as well as examples of successful faculty/community partnerships, considerations for initiating and sustaining partnerships, and exploring resources to assist in partnership development or enhancement.
Panelists will also discuss how their ACE work has been impacted by Covid-19 and will provide a preview for the spring series of workshops on academic community engagement.
