Community-Engaged Scholarship - Group of students with laptops, books, and phones in front of a transit map

Community-engaged scholarship and teaching can be incredibly rewarding. It gets us out of our offices and classrooms and into our communities. Our work finds new audiences, shapes and is shaped by our neighbors, and feels like work worth doing. But it’s hard. It takes a lot of time and energy to build authentic relationships based in trust and shared benefit. Universities may say they support this work, but how to translate that into professional support is a whole different story. And getting the institution to kick in material support for these enterprises is a whole different question.

In this webinar, Dr. Kate Drabinski discusses best practices for doing community-engaged scholarship and teaching, even in challenging contexts. Special attention is be paid to the ethical questions this work can provoke as well as how to negotiate with institutions to make it “count.”
