Center for Engagement and Community Development Engagement Brown Bag series continues Oct. 7

Submitted by David Procter

The Center for Engagement and Community Development continues its fall 2016 brown bag engagement series with the second session from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 7, in 247 Leadership Studies Building.

The topic will be "A Spotlight on Engaged Scholarship: K-State's Engagement Scholarship Consortium Conference Presentations." Engagement Scholarship Consortium Conference presenters will provide a short preview of their competitively-selected presentations.

Faculty and staff presenting at the conference include David Procter, Elaine Johannes, Timothy Shaffer, Nancy Daniels, Chandra Ruthstrom, Sally Bailey, LaBarbara James Wigfall, Katie Kingery-Page, Todd Gabbard, Miranda Klugesherz, and Mirta Chavez. Provost April Mason also will be part of a plenary session. The conference will be Oct. 11-12 in Omaha, Nebraska.

The brown bag professional development sessions are designed for faculty, graduate and undergraduate students. The sessions will highlight the concept of university-community engagement through exemplars of K-State and community-engaged scholarship.

The sessions are designed to help faculty think about developing community-based research and engagement skills, and provide foundational training for the next generation of engaged scholars. These interactive sessions will encourage faculty and students to critically reflect on the process and content of community-engaged scholarship.

Future upcoming engagement brown bag sessions in 247 Leadership Studies Building:

  • Voter Readiness: 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4. 
  • Imagining America and Cultural Arts Engagement: 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2. 

This series of engagement brown bags is free and open to all faculty, staff and students. For any questions regarding the series, contact the Center for Engagement and Community Development at 785-532-6868. We hope to see you there.
