2017 Community Engaged Scholars Symposium
The Community Engaged Scholars Symposium is an annual event at UNC that allows faculty, students, staff and community members to come together to celebrate the importance of community-engaged teaching, learning, research and creative works.
The 2017 Community Engaged Scholars Symposium was held on October 24, 2017.
The recipients of the Phelps Family CAP Awards, UNC Engaged Scholar Awards, and the Award for Excellence in Social Science Engaged Research were recognized.
Drs. Liz Gilbert and Virginia Visconti presented a workshop, "Competence and Humility: The Path to Authentic Engagement." The interactive session explored what cultural competence and cultural humility are, why both matter for the pursuit of authentic engagement, and how both can be cultivated as participants identify their next steps for strengthening critical self-reflection and relationship building among diverse partners.
Dr. Virginia Visconti is the Community Practice Specialist for the Center for Public Health Practice and an instructor in the Health Systems, Management and Policy Department at the Colorado School of Public Health at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.
Dr. Liz Gilbert is an Engaged Scholar and Associate Professor who joined the University of Northern Colorado and Colorado School of Public Health @ UNC Faculty in 2008.
The poster session is an opportunity for those across campus and the community to highlight community-engaged learning projects and opportunities.
