Is mutually beneficial engagement between universities and their external partners possible? Can the academic work of teaching and research be pursued with external partners in ways that produce results that not only matter for communities and businesses, but also count for the academy? Can civic engagement be a means of conducting research that generates scholarly publications? Join faculty from across New York state and Pennsylvania to explore affirmative answers to these questions, highlighting the tangible benefits of scholarly civic engagement work, and the challenges and barriers that must be addressed and overcome for it to be done more deeply and effectively. Scott Peters, national co-director of Imagining America, will frame the topic with his keynote address. A panel of engaged Binghamton University faculty will provide examples and recommendations drawn from their own experiences. Participants will also share their perspectives and engage in discussion. Tables to share materials and lunch will be provided.
