On October 12, 2017, faculty from across campus came together at the National Churchill Center to discuss community-engaged scholarship. Dr. Greg Squires of the Sociology Department led the discussion and discussed ways in which faculty can engage with the community. Greg opened with a quote from Amitai Etzioni - "Why don't you choose to do something useful?" He shared his experience and resources with the group.
Faculty discussion centered around challenges of community-engaged scholarship and steps that can be taken to make GW a better environment for this work. Dr. Squires shared his notes which you can access here. Thanks to everyone who joined us in October. November's session is just around the corner on November 8th, at the Churchill Center in Gelman at 9:30 a.m. - we hope to see you there!
