Understanding Public Scholarship in Promotion and Tenure
David Scobey, Scott Peters

Hine Hall, IP Room 206
Public scholarship and community-engaged research are strategies for faculty work on engaged campuses. Our own campus guidelines now include "public scholar" and "public scholarship." But what do these terms mean for faculty as well as for members of promotion and tenure committees? How does one best document and evaluate the quality and impact of public scholarship?
Imagining America: Artists and Scholars in Public Life (IA) is one of several national associations that have focused attention on public scholarship, including making recommendations for criteria and evidence of quality in public scholarship--particularly in the humanities, arts, design fields, and social sciences.
Join Drs. Scobey and Peters in a conversation regarding the results of national work coordinated by Imagining America that describes a continuum of public-engaged practice and scholarly products. This session will include case study examples from other campuses to illuminate discussion and will feature local work undertaken this year by the IUPUI Public Scholarship Faculty Learning Community (FLC).

Audiences: Junior faculty with an interest in doing publicly-engaged work, members of promotion and tenure committees, faculty administrators, and graduate students.
Sponsors: Public Scholarship Faculty Learning Community, Office of Academic Affairs, Center for Service and Learning, IUPUI Arts and Humanities Institute
