Sustaining Publicly Engaged Projects
**Please note** location change. Workshop will now be in Sayles-Hill 251
The workshop has two major goals:
1) To help faculty think about the full life-cycle of their publicly facing projects and community partner relationships, and, by thinking about such projects in this more holistic, sustainable manner, to be better equipped not only to start such projects, but also to develop meaningful midway-points and end goals.
2) To clarify for faculty how they can work towards placing their publicly facing scholarship in venues other than traditional scholarly journals, and, in the process, help them a) identify appropriate venues and begin to think about the ways they will need to re-frame their work for those audiences; b) understand what Carleton - esp. external relations/publications - can do to help faculty get their work out in front of larger audiences, raising the profile of both individuals and the college as a whole.
