(This session is intended to be paired with the presentation by the 2017 recipient of the Ernest A. Lynton Award for the Scholarship of Engagement). The session will contextualize the Lynton Award recipient’s work in a larger understanding of a new generation of engaged scholars who are advancing knowledge in ways that are both trans-disciplinary and asset-based, who are increasingly diverse, and who are seeking institutional homes that will allow them to thrive as engaged scholars. Participants will examine organizational policies, structures, and practice on their own campuses that support or impede community engaged scholars and collectively analyze areas of strategic change that will attract enggaed scholars and support them in ther scholarship. The goal of the workshop is to assist campuses in considering changes that will work to attract engaged scholars and consider how community engagment interacts with strategic priorities of increasng faculty diversity and the success of underserved students. The goal of the workshop is examine how the next generation of engaged scholars can help shape, and transform, the future of higher education - and how campuses can create institutional cultures in which the next generation of publically engaged scholars can thrive. Overall, the session is designed to deepen understanding of the scholarly identities, professional practices, public commitments, and aspirations of a new generation of engaged scholars.
