The University of Alberta invites engaged scholars across the globe to the 15th annual Engagement Scholarship Consortium Conference, to be held in Edmonton, Alberta on Oct 5-9, 2014. The theme is “Engaging for Change: Changing for Engagement.” The conference aims challenge scholars, students, and community partners to discuss international advancements in the scholarship of engagement. Pre-conference activities take place Oct 5-6 and the conference continues on Oct 7-8, 2014. We are planning to have a gathering of the Community-Engaged Scholarship Partnership in conjunction with the conference, as well as presentations based on the Partnership’s work.
