To: University of Alabama Engagement Scholars and Aspiring Engagement Scholars:
One of the participants at the National Outreach Scholarship conference at Penn State October 6-8 2008, was Professor Angie Hart from the University of Brighton in England. Angie and her community partner, Kim Aumann, were involved in the entire conference, presenting papers at a couple of sessions and offering poster sessions as well. Professor Hart provides academic and community leadership for the University of Brighton’s Community-University Partnership Program (Cupp). The second Cupp conference will be held at the University of Brighton April 2-3, 2009. The links for the conference homepage and calendar of events are provided below. The work of Hart and her colleagues is described in their recent book Community-University Partnerships in Practice. A review of this book by Jim Frabutt, University of Notre Dame, was published recently in Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, and reprinted here. "” Ted Alter, Penn State.
