About the Session
In recent years, much has been written and discussed about the need for U. S. colleges and universities to aggressively and creatively engage society’s most pressing challenges-from questions of technology and globalization to the cultures of capitalism and personal identity to the long-term implications of climate change and environmental degradation. Thus, increasing numbers of colleges and universities have undertaken innovative efforts to reinvigorate civic engagement or a “covenant” with society that commits faculty, students, and administrators to apply their skills, resources, and talents to address important issues affecting local communities, the nation, and the world. This webinar considers how colleges and universities can integrate faculty engagement in academic-review processes and emphasizes the importance of expanding institutions’ understanding of the traditional review categories of research, teaching, and service to reflect achievements and successes in the area of public engagement.
