The University of Michigan-Dearborn celebrated its 6th Annual Engagement Day on Thursday, January 23, 2020, as part of the MLK Week of Celebration on campus.

Hosted by OMI, in close collaboration with departments across campus, this event highlights and recognizes all of the many ways in which the campus and metropolitan community has engaged in collaborative and mutually beneficial relationships over the past few years.  Engagement Day will be held in Kochoff Hall of the University Center and will showcase service projects, community-based research, community-based class/student projects, and related engaged activities.  There will be a variety of poster displays and oral presentations from students, faculty, staff, and community partners discussing collaborative projects they are working on.

Annual Engaged Scholarship Showcase

The first annual Engaged Scholarship Showcase was held on April 8th, 2022. This showcase included two keynote speakers (Lina Dostilio and Laura Dyszlewski) and two faculty panels. The event gave faculty and staff the opportunity to learn about engaged scholarship - best practices, making long lasting connections, and collaborative work. Faculty were also able to showcase their own engaged research, with topics including: business, industry, government, community, and more.

The next Engaged Scholarship Showcase will be held on April 14th, 2023. Stay tuned for more information!
