Webinar: CREATING AND ENHANCING CAMPUS INFRASTRUCTURE FOR ADVANCING COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
May 22, 2017 | 1:00pm PT
May 25, 2017 | 8:00am PT
Dr. John Saltmarsh, Professor, Higher Education in the Department of Leadership in Education, College of Education and Human Development University of Massachusetts, Boston
Dr. Marshall Welch, Independent Scholar
Welch and Saltmarsh introduced an inventory that helps institutions understand their current infrastructure in order to set goals and develop strategy to support and deepen their community engagement. Participants had the opportunity to consider participation in a daylong Institute that the presenters offer to help institutions unpack the data collected through the inventory. This webinar was ideal for any institution that prioritizes community engagement and can benefit from a process by which to evaluate and envision.
