With the leadership of Provost Ann Cudd and Senior Vice Chancellor Kathy Humphrey, the Community Engaged Scholarship Forum featuring the Senior Vice Chancellor's Partnerships of Distinction Awards will be held on March 3, 2020 in the William Pitt Union.

The theme for the event is "Progress Through Partnerships: Building momentum together." This full-day professional conference is an opportunity to elevate and celebrate the diversity of community engaged partnerships happening on-campus and across the region. We will recognize and support the pivotal contributions individuals and teams across the institution make to advance community engagement within higher education as well as learn together to further our collective practice.

Faculty, staff, researchers, post-docs, and students are all invited to submit proposals for workshops and/or poster presentations for consideration. Any member of the University community and external individuals or institutions may submit a nomination for Partnerships of Distinction. Nominees should demonstrate reciprocity, mutual benefit, and significant community impact. For questions email
