  • Emily Morrison, Human Services and Social Justice Program (CCAS)

Morrison and Wagner will be presenting findings from their research study on the variety of faculty approaches to engaged scholarship and how appreciating these differences can facilitate greater faculty collaboration and a stronger community of support for engaged work in general. Note, they will also be presenting these findings during the 2-3pm poster presentation session.
