Becoming an Engaged Academic: Integrating Service and Engagement into Research, Teaching, and Service.
The project is centered around increasing community impact and helping academics learn how to become engaged scholars. As I've forged a path for myself as a community engaged academic (in teaching, research, and service) it has become clear to me that there are too few resources to help us learn how to get our students or research projects intertwined with our communities. Communication and Community Engagement is a new course at the University of Nevada, Reno. Student, faculty, and partner experiences from the course will serve as data for a new academic book, "Becoming an Engaged Academic: Integrating Service and Engagement into Research, Teaching, and Service.
