Documenting and Assessing Engaged Scholarship and Impact for Tenure and Promotion

Documenting and Assessing Engaged Scholarship and Impact for Tenure and Promotion

Systems for faculty career advancement – including promotion, tenure, and professional development – have often not kept pace with changing faculty roles. They further have not met the demands of major funding agencies or the mandate that publicly funded research benefit all citizens. To address this topic, the College of Social and Applied Human Sciences and the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute hosted a 3-hour workshop on May 6th, 2016. This workshop guided participants on how to document and assess engaged scholarship and impact in the context of tenure and promotion application. This session was intended for tenure and promotion committees, Tri-Council applicants and reviewers, and community-engaged scholars. For a overview of what was discussed at the workshop, take a look at the "Documenting and Assessing Engaged Scholarship and Impact for Tenure and Promotion" presentation

This workshop was facilitated by Dr. Cathy Jordan from the University of Minnesota and CES4Health. It addressed:

  • What makes a community-engaged activity 'scholarship'?
  • Making your best case for promotion or tenure as a community-engaged scholarship
  • Trends and challenges for community-engaged scholarship
  • Understanding and documenting community impact
  • Evaluating quality and significance in community-engaged scholarship
