In the context of a swift and significant changes in the university (faculty and student demographics, skills sets, technologies, expressions of knowledge, impacts of scholarship, etc.) Dr. Eatman shares examples of some of the richest and most impactful community-engaged scholarship and the (academically) unfamiliar forms of expression they may take. Come learn of national examples drawn from a handful of the 80+ Imagining America (IA) member campuses and talk with fellow colleagues about what this means for us at UNCG, particularly in recruiting and retaining the current and future generations of scholars. Faculty and graduate students will also learn how to leverage UNCG’s membership to IA to build their engaged scholarly agendas and networks.
Eatman’s visit is part of the 2013 Community Engagement Series.
