If you are a faculty member who conducts community-engaged research and/or teaching and are approaching the promotion and tenure process in the coming months, you are invited to attend an information session about the University's newly formed Review Committee on Community-Engaged Scholarship. The information session will be held from 9 to 10 a.m. on Wednesday, January 23 in 237 Morrill Hall on the University's Minneapolis campus.
A new initiative of the Office for Public Engagement and the Vice Provost for Faculty and Academic Affairs, the Review Committee on Community-Engaged Scholarship is composed of tenured professors from diverse disciplines and professional fields who have agreed to review the dossiers of community-engaged scholars and submit to promotion and tenure committees a written evaluation that speaks to the quality and impact of scholars' engaged scholarship.
The January 23 information session is targeted to assistant professors and associate professors. The session will be led by Vice Provost for Faculty and Academic Affairs Rebecca Ropers-Huilman and the Office for Public Engagement's Faculty Director for Academic Planning and Programs David Weerts.
Registration is requested by Monday, January 14.
