ADVANCING INSTITUTIONALIZATION OF COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT IN TIMES OF TRANSITION

Thursday, February 3rd, 2022, 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Campus Compact

How do units responsible for overseeing community engagement initiatives sustain momentum through executive leadership transitions and other changes on campus? In the absence of a strong impetus for institution-wide organizing and coordination (e.g., external grant funding, preparing Carnegie applications, or developing quality enhancement plans for reaccreditation), what strategies and pathways might sustain or even enhance the institutionalization of engagement?  How do we organize and collectively build a broader infrastructure that enhances buy-in, support, and shared leadership for engagement activities across campus and community?

COALITION CONVERSATIONS: CONSIDERING APPROACHES TO FACULTY DEVELOPMENT

Wednesday, February 16th, 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Campus Compact

The field of community-engaged scholarship continues to evolve as we better understand the nuances of our work. Faculty development needs to follow a similar trajectory. In 2010, Doberneck, Glass and Schweitzer found that faculty divide their community-engaged work into four categories: research, teaching and learning, creative activities, and service. Faculty development efforts must address the type of community-engaged scholarship, institutional context, and the transformative nature of this work. What models are you using to create quality faculty development initiatives?
