Workshop Description

Community engagement as a method for teaching and conducting research can produce published professional articles (research and non-research), books, and book chapters as acceptable products that support tenure and promotion that traditionally are embraced by academia. This session will discuss a variety of approaches by which both traditional and non-traditional products from engaged work can be crafted to support promotion and tenure. It will also explore how the various aspects of community-engaged work may be documented for promotion and tenure purposes.

As a result of attending this session you will be able to:

  1. Compare traditional scholarship with community-engaged scholarship
  2. Identify the kind of activities that may be documented for promotion and tenure purposes
  3. Identify characteristics of activities and products to meet the requirements for promotion and tenure
