Attention: Faculty, Academic Staff, and Graduate Students

February 22, 2019 

Kellogg Center

10:00 a.m.- 12 p.m.


Looking for new ways to involve students in community-engaged research? Interested in possible approaches? Three MSU faculty members will share their experiences in guiding students to respectfully work with communities as collaborators on research projects, both in and outside of the classroom.

In this workshop, faculty members will:

  1. share theoretical models and practical approaches used in their engaged research;
  2. guide participants through a process to promote self-reflection throughout the engaged research experience--mirroring the methods used to support students who are involved in community-engaged research; and
  3. support participants in the identifying and planning for their own engaged research projects with students and community partners.

Workshop participants will come away with big picture ideas as well as practical strategies to use in mentoring students through the community-engaged research experience.
