To develop recommendations for decreasing barriers and increasing support for graduate students to be a part of community-engaged scholarship. The task force will determine the greatest barriers to graduate students in pursuing community-engaged scholarship opportunities and recommend what programs, policies, and resources need to be developed or enhanced to have the greatest impact in facilitating graduate students' community-engaged scholarship.
Graduate students have increasing interest in connecting their academic pursuits with those of community issues. However, due to a variety of reasons support for this type of scholarship can be difficult for graduate students to find. Graduate students at the U of M have asked the Office for Public Engagement to create a plan for increasing systematic support for publicly-engaged scholarship opportunities for graduate students.
