Public Engagement Project: Faculty as Engaged Scholars in an Era of Uncertainty
May 1, 2017
12:00 pm-1:30 pm
Room: Hadley Room
UMass Amherst Campus
What are the roles and responsibilities of researchers in these uncertain political times? How can scholars best use their resources to respond to attacks on vulnerable populations and institutions? Panelists will address how recent developments in our government affect the roles as researchers and teachers, and how scholars can contribute to positive change through public engagement.
Lunch will be served.
