A three-part webinar series facilitated by Dr. Emily Janke, Director, Institute for Community and Economic Engagement, University of North Carolina at Greensboro (bio)
Illuminating your institution’s portrait of community engagement and public service activities is about more than gaining recognition for good work that has already been done. Understanding the full scope and depth of who is doing what, where, when, with whom, to what ends is also an effective organizational change strategy to increase the practice and legitimacy of community engagement as scholarly work. Join Dr. Emily Janke and TreeTop Commons to explore theory-driven strategies to build a shared and collective campus-wide conversation about the role and value of community engagement in meeting institutional priorities including enrollment, hiring, diversity, and fundraising. Learn about strategies to collect information that allow you to understand your institutional portrait, and why systems to track and measure community engagement activities are strategically invaluable in revealing your institution’s “masterpiece” as a community-engaged institution.
