Cultivating Effective University-Community Engagement: A Workshop for UT Faculty, Graduate Students, and Community Members

March 20, 2013
1-5:45 pm

 

Please join us for a half-day forum on university engagement with communities. Highlighting recent case studies involving UT faculty and students, the forum offers an opportunity for meaningful discourse about cultivating effective community engagement relationships and a chance to assess the strengths and challenges of community-university partnerships. The forum will bring together faculty, students, administrators, and community members who are engaged in this work and in a position to influence teaching, policy, and practice. Scott J. Peters, Co-Director at Imagining America, will deliver the keynote, followed by case studies, interactive breakout sessions, and final reconvening. The day will end with a reception and poster session featuring student projects.
