This session is for those from Duke and their community partners who are working together to produce knowledge, whether through academic research, program evaluation, community-student learning opportunities or a combination of these and other methods.

The events we host.

The Community-Engaged Scholarship Collaborative holds events during the academic year to engage participants in special topics related to the expansive work of university-community initiatives. Events are open to all.

Annually, we strive to provide:

  • Engaged Scholars Lunch and Learn Sessions: A series of 4 offerings (2 fall, 2 spring) highlighting the work of advanced community engaged scholars and community partners. These sessions highlight partnerships, scholarship and critical lessons learned along the way.
  • Workshops on Engaged Scholarship: A series of 4 offerings (2 fall, 2 spring) throughout the school year, developed and provided in partnership with other units on campus providing support to community-engaged scholarship.
  • Engaged Scholarship Symposium: This annual event brings together those involved in community-engaged scholarship through the fellowship program and project funding streams. Sessions are led by Duke engaged scholars and community partners. The symposium serves as both an opportunity for cross-learning among project teams and a showcase of engaged scholarship at Duke and in the community.
