The Annual Engaged Scholarship Symposium is an opportunity to network and share current research and teaching activities involving community partners and service to the community. Please join us for a half day of panel presentations, lightning talks, and recognition of UofL faculty receiving national awards in community-engaged scholarship.

The opening Plenary Session will include recognition of:

   Faculty: Dr. Cate Fosl – Anne Braden Institute, College of Arts & Sciences
      The W. K. Kellogg Community Engagement Scholarship Award  2019 Recipient
        Community Partner: The Fairness Campaign

    Faculty: Dr. Dedra Hayden and Krista Roach – School of Nursing
      The W. K. Kellogg Community Engagement Scholarship Exemplary Award 2020 Recipient
        Community Partner: Kentucky Racing Health and Welfare Fund

The 10:45am Keynote Speaker will be Dr. Darren E. Lund, Professor, University of Calgary on "Seeking Cultural Humility in Justice-Based Community Engagement." Dr. Lund’s talk will offer a timely reminder that this work of attending to difference is not simply about pursing harmony with our colleagues, students, and community partners. Bringing about social and institutional changes toward racial equity requires thoughtful advocacy and even some professional risk. Dr. Lund will offer specific insights and ideas from his three decades of work on social justice activism and human rights. He will address notions of privilege, and the need to attend to our own complex identities in community engaged work. His presentation will highlight research from a community-driven university education program that seeks to foster cultural humility in pre-service teachers. For over a decade, the award-winning Service Learning for Diversity Program has worked collaboratively with community agencies that serve diverse young people, including immigrant and refugee children, youth with disabilities, LGBTQ2+ youth, and Native/Indigenous youth. Participants can expect a lively talk that includes meaningful take-aways and resources for a range of settings, as well as some time for questions and answers.

Event is free, but registration is required.
