UofL's annual Engaged Scholarship Symposium is an opportunity to network and share current research and teaching activities involving community partners and service to the community. The theme for the 2022 Engaged Scholarship Symposium is Community Engagement in the Era of COVID. Many of us were forced to change the way we teach and conduct research because of the pandemic and community engagement is no exception. This Symposium will explore how we are engaging with our community during the pandemic, how we are collaborating with community partners, the effect of the changes on our work, challenges encountered, and lessons learned to name a few areas.

Plenary Session (9:00am-10:10am, Chao Auditorium)

Opening Panel – Community Engagement in the Era of Covid (9:10am - 10:10am)
Faculty Fellows in The Commonwealth Center for the Humanities and Society will reflect on what engaged scholarship means to them and what it looks like in their work, particularly during the time of Covid-19, which greatly impacted the way we engaged with community partners. The Fellows will also share their vision for engaged scholarship at UofL.
