Diane Doberneck, Ph.D., is the assistant director at the National Collaborative for the Study of University Engagement and an adjunct assistant professor in the Liberty Hyde Bailey Scholars Program. Doberneck's research interests include outreach and engagement in promotion and tenure processes; faculty integration of outreach and engagement across their teaching, research, and service responsibilities; graduate student and faculty pathways to careers as engaged scholars; international community engagement; and effective strategies for teaching and learning community engagement. Informed by this research, Doberneck creates and supports the co-creation of professional development programs on community engagement—including Tools of Engagement (undergraduate students), the Graduate Certificate in Community Engagement (graduate students), and faculty development activities. In addition, she coordinates an international university-community partnership with the Tochar Valley Rural Community Network (Co. Mayo, Ireland) that enhances rural community vitality through community engagement. Together, Tochar Valley community members and MSU students assist communities in developing a deeper sense of place; individual, organizational and community capacities; and cultural and natural heritage assets. Doberneck won MSU's First Annual Curricular Service-Learning and Civic Engagement Award in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources in 2008 and the H. Paul Roberts Award for Distinguished Service in Study Abroad Programs in 2011 for her international engagement work.
