Outreach and Engagement Practitioners Workshop

A Preconference Event of the Engagement Scholarship Consortium Annual Conference

September 14, 2020
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The cost for attending is $100.

The Outreach and Engagement Practitioners Pre-Conference workshop is for boundary-spanning community engagement professionals interested in learning more about emerging and ongoing trends in community engagement scholarship. The workshop is designed for university staff, non-tenure-track faculty, and community partners, who facilitate, manage, direct, and administer ongoing projects, programs, services, research, and relationships between institutions of higher education and community partners. Because of the overlap in roles, skills, and values, all boundary spanners who facilitate community-university partnerships are welcome and encouraged to attend.

The workshop will provide participants the opportunity to learn from one another and identify strategies to help their institutions to be advocates that are more effective leaders and change-makers in their communities. Assessment of partnerships, good engagement practices, and institutional frameworks in higher education are all topics that will be discussed. Participants will be able to take home new strategies to advance this work.

2020 information coming soon!
