Community Engaged Scholar Discussion Group offers Important Lessons that Cross Disciplines
The 2013-2014 Community Engaged Scholar Discussion Groups are nearly complete. We have featured diverse scholars including (but not limited to) Marie Lovrod (ICCC and English) Chelsea Willness (ESB), Robert Innes (Native Studies) , Lalita Bharadwaj (SPH) and Claire Thomson (History). In each presentation, we have heard the stories of how scholars became community engaged, the methods they use to effectively work with various community partners and students, and a variety of other questions pressing on the minds of attendees, including, how to prepare for tenure and promotion with community-engaged work.
International Women’s Day 2014
We were pleased to support and participate in a celebration of International Women’s Day 2014 alongside community members, professionals, students and scholars. It was a lively afternoon focused on the crucial importance of reproductive health, childcare, and honouring local and international roles of women. The event endeavoured to provoke collaboration, cultivate solidarity and celebrate the work already happening, both locally and internationally.
