Engaged Scholarship: Aligning Expectations for Faculty Scholarship with the Institutional Mission

While universities strive to promote and sustain the public good, faculty reward structures typically emphasize traditional scholarship over community engagement. This session will address the recognition of community engaged scholarship in the faculty promotion and tenure process, and policy and culture changes to promote alignment between mission and reward structures.

What is a "Teaching University" Anyway? Mission Creep and the Role of Public Universities

The role of comprehensive universities and expectations for faculty have evolved. The perception of what universities should be has changed. We will challenge the notion that “teaching universities” are all about teaching, and spark conversation on the divergence among what higher education means to institutions, faculty, students, and the public.

The Politics of the Public Good

In this session, we wish to articulate a vision for the role education plays in producing the public good. The goal is to communicate not only the economic value of a university but also the public good it produces as an incubator for regional cultural and political movements.
