Participating faculty, tenure-track and tenured faculty, and their community partners are encouraged to apply for a Community of Practice (CoP) pilot program for community-engaged scholars, which will be launched in spring 2020.
Faculty at all levels of experience in community-engaged scholarship are welcome. Though faculty are not required to participate with a community partner, the CoP provides a great opportunity for faculty and community partners to learn together and bond in a common experience. In addition to promoting personal and professional growth in community-engaged scholarship, the CoP includes conceptual and practical content intended to increase knowledge and partnership.
There will be six in-person sessions from February through May, covering a variety of topics, including:
- Scholar identity
- Developing relationships
- Team building strategies
- Funding guidance for community-engaged scholarship projects
- Community engaged teaching
Applications are due Wednesday, Jan. 22. More information and the application are available online.
With questions, contact Dr. Kristin Haglund, professor of nursing and 2019-20 provost’s fellow. Dr. Haglund is overseeing the Community-engaged Faculty Mentorship Curriculum Development initiative. Learn more about the fellows and each initiative online.
