Faculty, staff, and students from two- and four-year institutions are invited to attend the 2019 Regional Engaged Scholarship Symposium at Texas Tech University in Lubbock. The symposium will feature break-out sessions, workshops, and roundtable discussions focused on the theory and practice of Engaged Scholarship in Higher Education.

Call for Proposals

An engaged institution is one that has redesigned its teaching, research/creative activity, and service to be responsive to diverse community needs and changing societal challenges, while enriching faculty scholarship and the student experience through mutually beneficial community partnerships.

We are inviting proposals for presentations from college and university faculty, academic staff, administrators, and students that will inform or advance the theory and practice of engaged teaching, research/creative activity, or service in higher education based on research or evidence-based practice.
