Community-Engaged Research Inquiry Group

Five Critical Conversations on the Intersection between Institutional Support and Community-Engaged Research

Catalyst: Dr. Eva Simms, 2014-2015 Gaultier Faculty Fellow

Over the course of the year, faculty members are invited to participate in five evolving conversations with Dr. Eva Simms and a variety of panelists about community-engaged research at Duquesne. Dr. Simms' Share the Knowledge project is an example of a participatory research process designed to develop a set of best practices for reconnecting African-American children and adults to places of nature within their communities. In an effort to recognize the project as an example of community-engaged research and to advocate for the adoption of such research across the University, it will be utilized as a primary case study to explore and expand upon the following questions:

How do we cultivate funding for community-engaged research?
Monday, October 27, 3 - 4:30 p.m.

How do we build an institutional language and nomenclature for community-engaged research?
Tuesday, November 11, Noon - 1:30 p.m.

What are the ethical implications of producing knowledge in and with communities?
Thursday, January 22, Noon - 1:30 p.m.

What are the nuances of involving students (graduate and undergraduate) in community-engaged research?
Monday, February 16, 3 - 4:30 p.m.

How do we appropriately reward and recognize community-engaged research as a part of the faculty workload?
Wednesday, March 18, 3 - 4:30 p.m.
