SUBJECT: Reminder: Please Register for the April 8th Engaged Scholarship Showcase

March 31, 2022 at 9:13 AM

Dear Colleagues;

I hope you all are doing well. I want to remind you all that our inaugural Engaged Scholarship Showcase will be held virtually next Friday, April 8, starting at 12:30 p.m. 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 (starting at 12:30 p.m.):

  • 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 (starting at approximately 1:30 p.m.):

  • “Showcasing the Work of UM-Dearborn Faculty,” in which we will highlight four faculty members: DeLean Tolbert Smith, Jacob Napieralski, 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!
