The growing civic engagement movement in American higher education is grounded in the assumption that mutually beneficial engagement is possible.  The academic work of teaching and research can be pursued with external partners in productive ways that not only matter for communities and businesses, but also can result in publications.  This institute will explore the tangible benefits of scholarly civic engagement work, and the challenges and barriers that must be addressed and overcome for it to be done more deeply and effectively. Dr. Scott Peters, National Co-Director of Imagining America, will frame the topic with his keynote address.  A panel of engaged faculty will then provide numerous examples and recommendations, drawn from their own experiences. Participants will also share their perspectives and engage in discussion. Tables to share materials and lunch will be provided.


$30 for Campus Compact Members
