About the Tour

The Office of Academic Affairs is pleased to collaborate with the Division of Community Affairs and the Graduate School to host the annual New Faculty Community Engagement Tour.

The New Faculty Community Engagement Tour engages early career faculty and advanced graduate students in three, day-long tours of West Alabama and the Alabama Black Belt. Travelers have opportunities to develop innovative partnerships with community members and other campus researchers interested in community-based approaches to addressing community needs. Those who are involved in or interested in research that contributes to their discipline while making a positive impact on external stakeholders in our communities should participate.
