"Engaged Scholarship as a University Priority -
Concepts and Strategies for Success"

 University Outreach and Engagement hosted a workshop for Texas Tech faculty, "Engaged Scholarship as a University Priority - Concepts and Strategies for Success." The workshop took place on February 18, 2020 in the Teaching, Learning, and Professional Development Center of the Tech Library, and was a great success.

Engaged Scholarship is a distinctive, scholarly approach to university-community partnerships. Engaged scholars understand that the underlying principles of effective engagement with communities include mutual respect, recognition that community knowledge is valuable, and a focus on sustainability as an integral part of the relationship. This panel discussion includes Texas Tech faculty members who are involved in engaged scholarship and community partnerships. The panelists share their experiences in engaging with diverse sets of external communities for the mutual benefit of both the community and scholarship. They discuss strategies for identifying the right partners, building trust, setting expectations, dealing with challenges, and achieving successful outcomes for all involved.
