4th Annual Summer Intensive on Community-Engaged Scholarship, Jun 3-7

Posted by Michigan State University on March 5, 2019

Michigan State University’s Office of University Outreach and Engagement invites you to participate in the 4th annual Summer Intensive on Community-Engaged Scholarship, June 3-7, 2019 at the Michigan State University campus in East Lansing, MI. Together, we will explore the fundamental scholarship and practices that guide community-engaged teaching and learning, including service-learning and community-based research in courses, and community-engaged research.

The Summer Intensive is composed of interactive workshops, lunches in disciplinary clusters and with senior community-engaged scholarship, field trips and dialogue with community partners, one-on-one consultations, with time to develop or refine your own community engagement plan for your return to your own campus. This is the perfect opportunity to develop something new or revise and refresh existing community engagement efforts.

The Summer Intensive welcomes faculty, academic staff, and advanced graduate students who are committed to teaching or research in partnership with communities, nonprofit organizations, industry, or government partners that makes a positive impact on those communities and in their disciplinary fields. Participants should also be interested in learning from and contributing to a community of learners throughout the Summer Intensive.

We only accept 40 participants to keep the learning environment interactive and learner-focused.  Applications are due: Apr 5, 2019.
