SUBJECT: Engaged Scholarship Showcase

March 15, 2022 at 3:16 PM

Dear Colleagues,;

I am pleased to announce the inaugural Engaged Scholarship Showcase that will be held virtually the afternoon of on Friday, April 8, starting at 12:30pm. You can register for the event here

The Showcase is intended to highlight UM-Dearborn faculty who are actively involved in engaged scholarship; showing the value of participating in such activities; providing some tips and guidance of how faculty can get involved; and offer information about the mechanics of doing engaged scholarship.  

The program will consist of two keynote speakers: 

  • Lina Dostilio, Vice Chancellor of Engagement and Community Affairs at the University of Pittsburgh, an expert in engaged scholarship, and 
  • Laura Dyszlewski, Healthy Dearborn, project manager, who will speak on the impact of UM-Dearborn faculty working in the community.  

Additionally, the Showcase will feature two faculty panels:  

  • “Showcasing the Work of UM-Dearborn Faculty,” in which we will highlight the work of four faculty members, including Yi Su Chen and Dara Hill, whose work engages with industry, government and/or community, and 
  • A “Nuts & Bolts” panel, in which three experienced faculty, Paul Draus, ​​Fred Feng and Marcus Harris, will discuss the mechanics of engaged scholarship. 

Each part of the program will also be accompanied by Q&A sessions. 

If you have any questions, please contact Kelly Jabbusch ([email protected]) or Alex Yi ([email protected]).

Thank you and I’m looking forward to seeing you all there!
