Community Partnership Symposium Set for April 23-24

UNC Charlotte will host the inaugural Engaged Scholarship and Community Partnership Symposium Thursday and Friday, April 23 - 24.

Registration is open for this free event, which is designed to facilitate creative collaboration across disciplines, divisions and fields; to outline best practices and address challenges; and to strengthen partnerships. The Charlotte Research Institute, UNC Charlotte Campus Compact and Civic Engagement Interest Group, the Center for Applied Ethics and the Center for Teaching and Learning are sponsoring the symposium, which will be in the Cone University Center.

Community engagement refers to research, creative activities, teaching and service activities that are collaboratively undertaken by UNC Charlotte faculty, staff and/ or students in partnership with community members. Engaged activities are defined by reciprocal relationships between University and community partners in which all participants recognize and value the knowledge, perspective and resources that partners contribute to the collaboration.
