Diversity and public scholarship

9:04 a.m., Feb. 22, 2013--University of Delaware faculty, staff, students and administrators are invited to participate in a Diversity and Public Scholarship Symposium, scheduled from 8:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., Tuesday, March 12, in the Gallery at the Perkins Student Center.
Tim Eatman, co-director of Imagining America, Artists and Scholars in Public Life, will present the keynote address. Eatman is an educational sociologist, and his work has informed his successful effort to have publicly engaged scholarship included in promotion and tenure criteria at Syracuse University.
Getting ready for the new year
After the keynote address, a faculty panel dedicated to exploring the intersection between diversity and public scholarship will engage the University community in meaningful dialogue.
A working lunch will follow this interactive panel, and small groups of participants will be encouraged to discuss diversity and public engagement at UD.
