About the Workshop:
As part of its Mellon-funded Scholarship in Action Initiative, College of the Holy Cross, in collaboration with Campus Compact, Clark University, Anna Maria College, and Worcester State University, is pleased to host "Pathways to Engaged Scholarship: Integrating Community Engaged Scholarship into Faculty Identity". This workshop will be part of a series of workshops that will examine the key dimensions of carrying out meaningful community-engaged research and creative projects. The first workshop will focus on the faculty dimension while later themes will explore community partnerships and institutional supports in forming and sustaining projects. The goal of the workshop will be both to familiarize and deepen our understanding of community-based research and to jumpstart formation of research partnerships and projects in Worcester.
