Community Engaged Scholars Community of Practice to be facilitated in 2020-21

Participating faculty, tenure-track and tenured faculty are encouraged to apply for a Community of Practice (CoP) for Community Engaged Scholars to be launched this Fall.  

Faculty at all levels of experience in community engaged scholarship in research and teaching are eligible to apply. In addition to promoting personal and professional growth in community engaged scholarship, this CoP includes conceptual and practical content intended to increase knowledge and partnership. 

Twelve sessions alternating between inperson and self-directed activities will be scheduled from November 2020 to May 2021.   

Session topics include:  

  • Scholar identity  
  • Decolonizing research and teaching  
  • Developing relationships 
  • Team building strategies  
  • Funding guidance for CES projects  
  • Community engaged teaching  
  • Consultation   

Last year’s participants said CoP helped them to better understand the City of Milwaukee, the work being done in its communities and how Marquette as an institution fits in through community engaged practices. Participants were inspired, felt supported and strengthened their commitment to partnering with communities to advance common goals for health, justice, peace and human flourishing.  

As one participant said, “I felt affirmed in my developing identity as part of something at Marquette — a commitment to supporting communities and the work in them that ties us together and uplifts us collectively. I was very excited to have this support group to bounce ideas off and share my future steps as I continue to move forward with better understanding and contributing to efforts to support youth in Milwaukee.”
