Submitted by Melissa Winkel

Dr. Tim Shaffer

Tim Shaffer, associate professor of communication studies and director of the Institute for Civic Discourse and Democracy, was recently chosen to serve as the chair of the Emerging Engagement Scholarship Workshop, a premier program of the Engagement Scholarship Consortium.

This intensive professional development program provides advanced doctoral students and early career faculty with background literature, facilitated discussion, mentoring and presentations designed to increase their knowledge and enhance their practice of community-engaged scholarship. Participation in the Emerging Engagement Scholars Workshop is limited and interested applicants must be nominated to be considered for this annual workshop.

Learn more information about the Emerging Engagement Scholars Workshop as well as the Engagement Scholarship Consortium, a mix of public and private institutions working collaboratively to build strong university-community partnerships anchored in the rigor of scholarship and designed to help build community capacity. Kansas State University is a member institution of the consortium.
