Engaged Scholarship & Social Justice Conference
April 4 - April 5
This conference seeks to bring staff, faculty and undergraduates together to celebrate the engaged scholarship, and reflective learning that is taking place on our campuses. The purpose of this conference is:
- to honor scholarship which focuses on challenges facing society with regard to equity and inclusion and historically marginalized and under-represented communities;
- to illuminate community-engaged research which reflects qualities of reciprocity and mutuality in the co-creation of scholarship, in addition to being transdisciplinary and inclusive of knowledge from outside the academy.
- to provide undergraduate researchers an opportunity to engage in academic discourse and research dissemination
For student scholars, this is an opportunity to engage in academic dialogue with peers and faculty mentors. For faculty, this conference presents an opportunity to explore about how other disciplines conduct research that creates new knowledge and understanding about equity and social justice and to be inspired by the next generation of scholars.
