The Office of Community Engagement invites you to the 8th Annual Engaged Scholarship Symposium, on the theme of Making a Difference through University-Community Collaborations.

The symposium will explore the nature of university-community collaborations and the difference they are making. 

There are many university-community collaborations taking place through engaged-research, engaged-teaching, and outreach activities. These collaborations are making a difference in the lives of community members, our students, and our faculty.

The 2023 Engaged Scholarship Symposium seeks to explore the nature of university-community collaborations and the difference they are making. In what ways are university and community partners collaborating? What difference are these projects having on others? What lessons about these collaborations can be shared? One of the tracks of this year's symposium is: Sustainability, Justice, Environment, and community engagement – In what kinds of sustainability, justice, and/or environmental initiatives are university and community partners collaborating? How are we helping to promote sustainability in the community? How are UofL staff, faculty, and students engaged in work to promote environmental justice or support local sustainability initiatives?

These topics will be explored through a variety of lightning talks, panel presentations, round tables, and a community engagement awards ceremony that will include the presentation of this year's Josh Smith Memorial Sustainability Award

The opening session features Marisol Morales, executive director of the Carnegie Elective Classifications for the American Council on Education. Concurrent sessions of panels, lightning talks and round table presentations to follow.

Questions may be submitted to , Director of Community Engagement.
