Michigan State University’s Office for University Outreach and Engagement is pleased to host the seventh annual Summer Intensive on Community-Engaged Scholarship. We welcome community-engaged scholars and practitioners with interests in community-engaged research and community-engaged teaching and learning, including service-learning, informal learning, and community-engaged research in courses. Through interactive workshops, field trips, lightning talks, case studies, panel discussions, and individual consultations, Summer Intensive participants explore big-picture issues related to community engagement in a learning community setting and develop strategies and plans for their own successful engagement activities.

At the end of four days, you will come away with:

  • Conceptual frameworks and scholarly resources
  • Perspectives from community partners on engagement
  • Practical partnership, collaboration, and evaluation tools
  • Career advice from successfully tenured community-engaged faculty
  • Strategies for publishing your community-engaged scholarship
  • Ideas for sharing your community-engaged work with practitioner and public audiences
  • New national community-engaged peers and colleagues
