2019 Engaged Scholarship Symposium

February 11, 2019

Campus Compact of Southern New England is pleased to co-sponsor the 2019 Engaged Scholarship Symposium at UMass Dartmouth.

Historically, higher education has been criticized for hiding in the Ivory Tower – isolating ourselves from our communities and producing irrelevant research. More recently, there are indications that the entire system of knowledge generation and dissemination are in flux. The tower is crumbling. Scholars today are generating new approaches to teaching, learning, and knowledge generation. The Engaged Scholarship Symposium is designed to celebrate the usefulness of scholarship in shaping policy and enriching our communities. Participants will be exposed to strategies for involving students in active research and examples of engaged scholarship across many disciplines.

This event is free to attend, but space is limited and registration is required.
