A Virtual Event on March 31, 2021
Sponsored by University Outreach and Engagement as part of
Discoveries to Impact Week!
This year's Engaged Scholarship Symposium will feature the winners of the 2021 President's Engaged Scholarship Awards. The annual awards program recognizes individual Texas Tech faculty and teams of faculty (including students and staff) from all disciplines for a project or activity that demonstrates exemplary and sustained commitment to mutually beneficial partnerships with external communities. Recognized individuals apply their academic knowledge and expertise to address a specific community need or larger social issue in collaboration with community partners, aiming to find solutions that may impact the social or economic well-being of individuals, families, and communities.
The awards program consists of the following categories:
• The President's Excellence in Engaged Scholarship Award
• The President's Emerging Engaged Scholarship Award
• The President's Exemplary Program Award
The award winners in these categories will provide an overview of their projects and share best practices, challenges, and lessons learned. They will discuss the impacts that their engagement has had on communities, as well as teaching, research, and scholarship. Students who were involved in the award-winning projects will also share their perspectives and discuss the impacts that the experience has had on their learning and academic pathway.
The symposium will feature a morning and an afternoon session, as well as a keynote address.
