Event Date

Hosted by: UC Santa Cruz Institute for Social Transformation

As we try to navigate the opportunities for ‘building back better’, how can we help expand the space for community engaged scholarship? How can we more effectively deploy our resources, to strengthen truly equitable community partnerships across all aspects of the research process?  What does this mean for graduate students and early career faculty? For individual research centers?  For university administrators, and cross-university networks? 

Join us for a discussion on how we can seize the moment to help transform universities in the post-pandemic world, to be truly powerful partners in co-creating knowledge for justice.
