This interactive event will bring together researchers and multiple internal sponsor organizations to share and learn how we can leverage university resources to maximize our public and community impact. It will highlight successful research projects in four core areas:
- Research for Policy Impact
- Research for Community / Local / CBO / Programmatic Support
- Dissemination Strategies and Tools to Build Visibility and Engagement
- Collecting, Interpreting, and Analyzing Data for Impact, Using Mixed Methods
Intersections in Engaged Research will feature lightning talks, opportunities for networking, and breakout sessions to explore common engagement challenges and strategies to overcome them. Attendees will learn more about resources, funding mechanisms, training opportunities and networks that currently exist on campus. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from each other and inform how internal funders support engaged research on campus.
Registration and refreshments will begin at 12:30 p.m. with event kick-off at 1:00 p.m.
