Many university campuses are seeking ways to promote increased civic engagement
by their faculty. This session focuses on a complicated issue which may
ultimately determine the success of these initiatives: how should engaged
scholarship be evaluated during the promotion and tenure review process
relative to more traditional scholarly activities

About the Presenter:

Jordan Karubian:  In 2012, NERCHE was pleased to present the Ernest A. Lynton
Award to Dr. Jordan Karubian, Assistant Professor in the Department of Ecology
and Evolutionary Biology at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana.

An assistant professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at
Tulane University, Karubian’s community engagement, teaching, and research
focus on understanding and reversing environmental degradation and associated
loss of biodiversity. In the South American rainforest, he has developed a
multi-faceted program that blends scientific research with teaching, training,
and capacity building to improve the welfare and conservation capacity of local
residents, a model he is replicating in the savannah habitats of Australia and
Papua New Guinea. He works with students and community partners to research
threatened species and habitats, and to promote environmental awareness in the
Gulf of Mexico region. The common thread in his work is the integration of
community engagement with more traditional scholarly activities to empower
local residents to make informed environmental decisions. Karubian received his
B.S. from the University of California, San Diego and his M.S. and Ph.D. from
the University of Chicago
