This workshop will provide advanced graduate students and early career faculty with background literature, facilitated discussion, and presentations from national leaders and community partners designed to increase their awareness and knowledge of community-engaged scholarship and the scholarship of engagement. Participation is limited and interested applicants must be nominated to be part of this workshop.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2011 Emerging Engagement Scholars Workshop.
During the first three days of October 2012, The University of Alabama will host the National Outreach Scholarship Conference, the first time for UA to host this prestigious conference. Hundreds of the nation’s leading outreach and engagement scholars, along with community partners and students, will be here for the conference. Shown here are some of the members of the planning committee. At left are Dean Carolyn Dahl, dean of the College of Continuing Studies and chair of the Planning and Logistics Committee.
