On-campus workshop focuses on envisioning engagement at the UI April 26
Tuesday, April 23, 2013

University of Iowa faculty, staff, and graduate students are invited to participate in a workshop, Public Engagement in Higher Education, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Friday, April 26 at the UI College of Public Health.

The workshop is free and open to the university community and will focus on the ways universities and their faculty, staff, and students are recommitting themselves to their public missions and creating better futures for their local and global communities.

The workshop grew out of an Obermann Center Working Group focused on a deeper understanding of the role of campus-community partnerships in order to give attention and respect to the voices of community partners.
