Free Webinar about Community-Engaged Research

Faculty who conduct community-engaged research find that these collaborative research projects take additional time and have a higher risk of failure. Taking these risks can provide complications for seeking promotion and tenure. Campus Community Partnerships for Health (CCPH) is sponsoring a free webinar on civic engagement and the tenure review process. See the information below.
The webinar is free, but space is limited.

Where the Rubber Meets the Road: Civic Engagement and the Tenure Review Process 
Wednesday, March 20 from 12:00 to 1:30 PM EST 

Many university campuses are seeking ways to promote increased civic engagement by their faculty. This session focuses on a complicated issue which may ultimately determine the success of these initiatives: how should engaged scholarship be evaluated during the promotion and tenure review process relative to more traditional scholarly activities

About the Presenter:

Jordan Karubian: 
In 2012, NERCHE was pleased to present the Ernest A. Lynton Award to Dr. Jordan Karubian, Assistant Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana.

An assistant professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Tulane University, Karubian's community engagement, teaching, and research focus on understanding and reversing environmental degradation and associated loss of biodiversity. In the South American rainforest, he has developed a multi-faceted program that blends scientific research with teaching, training, and capacity building to improve the welfare and conservation capacity of local residents, a model he is replicating in the savannah habitats of Australia and Papua New Guinea. He works with students and community partners to research threatened species and habitats, and to promote environmental awareness in the Gulf of Mexico region. The common thread in his work is the integration of community engagement with more traditional scholarly activities to empower local residents to make informed environmental decisions. Karubian received his B.S. from the University of California, San Diego and his M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Chicago
