Civic Leadership and Citizen Scholarship Monday, April 13, 2020 11:30 am – 1:00 pm, Town Hall, Leadership Studies Building
As members of the K-State academic community, our studies and work are situated – physically and virtually – within local and global communities facing complex challenges. We all play a role in the civic mission of our institution, to generate knowledge and talent to advance the well-being of those communities. This session will help participants explore their present and future work, and consider how relationship, dialogue, and practice can be an explanatory lens to make sense of citizen-centered, community-engaged scholarship.
