Spotlighting engaged opportunities for K-State faculty and staff

Submitted by Mirna Bonilla

The Office of Engagement invites you to a catered lunch highlighting engagement opportunities for K-State faculty and staff from noon to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 28, in Room 201 of the Leadership Studies Building.

Join us as we spotlight colleagues who presented at the 2023 Engagement Scholarship Consortium conference, Mobilizing Change through Engaged Scholarship, in East Lansing, Michigan. The session will highlight the concept of university-community engagement through the work of K-State faculty and graduate students. We will also explore ways that K-State faculty, staff and students can participate in professional development opportunities offered through the Engagement Scholarship Consortium.

Some of K-State's presentations at the conference included:

  • "Creating Community Partnerships That Last — Turn Tightropes into Bridges."
  • "How can educational institutions develop effective engaged scholarship initiatives?"
  • "Mapping Engagement: A collaborative engagement paradigm of community-engaged scholarship."
  • "Veterinary Medicine's Role in Collaborative and Transdisciplinary Engagement."

The lunch session is designed to help faculty and students think about developing community-based research and engagement skills that provide foundational training for the next generation of engaged scholars. This interactive session will encourage participants to critically reflect on the process and content of community-engaged scholarship.

This event is free and open to all faculty, staff and students. Please RSVP for the catered lunch by Thursday, Nov. 23. For any questions regarding this event, please contact the Office of Engagement at ooengage@k-state.edu
