In this hands-on workshop, participants will discuss models to expand support for community-engaged teaching, research, and professional development in graduate programs and humanities centers across the University of California system. Following brief presentations, facilitators will lead a workshop addressing challenges that impact this work, with a focus on strategies for developing and sustaining programs that value the assets of all stakeholders. In advance of the workshop, we will continue to add documents to a Google Drive folder that includes topics for discussion and additional questions/challenges to help guide the conversation. Following the workshop, participants will have access to an online toolkit of resources, plans, pitches, rationales, funding strategies, and the like–in the hope that participants will continue the conversation and add new resources as they work to develop coalitions of support for engaged graduate education on their own campuses, within their regions, and across the IA network.
