The 2016 Outreach Scholarship Symposium hosted in partnership with the Tuskegee Auburn Women’s Leadership Alliance will be held on February 15-17 at the Auburn University Hotel and Conference Center.
There is no cost to register for the symposium. All accepted presenters must register for the symposium by Monday, February 8, 2016 at 11:59 PM.
Track One: The Scholarship of Engagement
Track one is for those interested in papers or posters related to the scholarship of engagement, outreach, extension, community engaged research and scholarship, and pedagogy related to community and civically engaged teaching. Papers or posters present Engaged Scholarship, a distinctive approach to university–community partnerships founded upon mutual respect and an understanding that a collaborative partnership can achieve sustainable and long lasting impacts for the benefit of society.
For more information on this track, contact Dr. Chippewa Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org
Track Two: Voices from the Margins
Track two is for those interested in narrative papers that explore voices from the margins of academe, particularly the situation of women, both past and present, within higher education and the professions. From the margins, these narratives will address issues such as fostering multicultural competence, combatting racism and sexism, and mentoring the next generation. Those presenting in Track Two will be given the opportunity to revise the presentation and submit it for publication consideration in our volume Outside In.
