From Diane Doberneck, University Outreach and Engagement
The Office for Public Engagement and Scholarship in University Outreach and Engagement coordinates opportunities for faculty, academic staff, and graduate students to learn about community-engaged research. Through one-time workshops, monthly meetings, and cohort programs, our offerings support beginners and experts alike in becoming increasingly sophisticated in their community collaborations and successful with their scholarship.
Publishing Community-Engaged Scholarship
For many community-engaged researchers, identifying relevant journals and setting aside the time for writing are commonly cited challenges. The Office for Public Engagement and Scholarship offers multiple ways to address these challenges, including one-on-one consultations, on-line resources, first Friday morning write-ins, a half-day workshop in the spring, and a two-day writing retreat each fall.
Visit our Learn to Engage website for more information about our write-ins and other support for successful publishing.
Developing and Implementing Broader Impacts
Along with the review of the intellectual merit of each proposal, the National Science Foundation reviews the expected broader impacts, or benefits to society, of the proposed research. The Office for Public Engagement and Scholarship offers one-on-one consultations, on-line resources, and workshops to support the planning and evaluation of broader impacts activities.
