Virtual Think Tank Series on Campus-Wide Civic Engagement
|Wednesday, December 18, 2013, 12:00pm - 01:30pm |
Join the New England Resource Center for Higher Education (NERCHE) for its Virtual Think Tank series, "Assessing and Rewarding Civic Engagement". NERCHE’s Virtual Think Tanks are webinars, or virtual discussions, designed to engage higher education practitioners in the exploration of collaborative change processes which address social justice in a diverse democracy.
As increasing numbers of college and universities renew their focus on addressing society’s most compelling issues through civic engagement, they must recognize and reward the engaged work of their faculty. This webinar will consider how colleges and universities can integrate faculty engagement in academic-review processes and emphasizes the importance of expanding institutions’ understanding of the traditional review categories of research, teaching, and service to reflect achievements and successes in the area of public engagement.
