Engaged Scholarship Faculty Community of Practice

The next meeting of the Engaged Scholarship Faculty Community of Practice will take place on Sept. 30 from 2:30-4 p.m. The Office of Outreach and Engagement has placed a greater emphasis on the scholarship of engagement over the past few years through its grants and awards programs. In an effort to further advance this work and raise its profile at the university, we have formed a Community of Practice (CoP) for Ohio State faculty. If your scholarship is in any way focused on connecting the "rich resources of the university to our most pressing social, civic and ethical problems," (from Boyer, 1996, The Scholarship of Engagement), we would invite you to participate in this CoP.

Nominations are being sought for future editions of the Provost's Discovery Themes Lecturer Program and the Patterson Land-Grant University Lecture.

The Provost's Discovery Themes Lecturer Program brings eminent authorities to Ohio State to address topics related to the Discovery Themes and to engage students, faculty, staff and members of the community in thoughtful examination of major issues of public concern.

The Patterson Lecture brings to campus annually a prominent figure to speak to the range of challenges facing land-grant institutions in the 21st century and beyond. The lecture challenges the university and community audience to continue to use their knowledge and resources and work together to solve world issues.
