The Honey W. Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service hosts this opportunity for GW faculty to connect in conversation on the subject of institutional recognition and advancement of community-engaged scholarship.
Dr. Greg Squires is a public sociologist, an author of many peer reviewed articles on his public sociology research, and has also written about the challenge of placing community-based research in refereed journals. Dr. Squires will describe the current state of recognition and reward for public scholarship in higher education. The conversation to follow will invite others to consider how community-engaged scholarship is evaluated and rewarded in their department and at GW broadly.

Community-Engaged Scholarship describes collaboration between institutions of higher education and their larger communities (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity.
The purpose of community engagement is the partnership of college and university knowledge and resources with those of the public and private sectors to enrich scholarship, research, and creative activity; enhance curriculum, teaching and learning; prepare educated, engaged citizens; strengthen democratic values and civic responsibility; address critical societal issues; and contribute to the public good.
