Research on Critical Issues in Advancing Community-Engaged Scholarship

Research on Critical Issues in Advancing Community-Engaged Scholarship

 

The 2014 Lynton Colloquium on the Scholarship of Engagement was held on September 15, 2014, at the University of Massachusetts, Boston. Hosted by NERCHE and the Center for Engaged Democracy (CED) at Merrimack College, the Annual Lynton Colloquium launched a new research initiative aimed at studying key community engagement issues identified by a crowd-sourcing methodology and input from Colloquium participants. Grounded in the work of NERCHE's Next Generation Engagement project and the CED's focus on academic programs in civic engagement, the Lynton Colloquium and the Request for Proposals which grew out of the meeting seek to foster sustained and systematic investigations that will support deeper understandings of and clearer actions around critical issues in advancing community engaged scholarship.

Research Priority Areas

The research initiative is framed with the goal of identifying the current critical challenges of advancing community engaged scholarship and the collaborative identification of research priority areas. The three research areas to emerge as priorities from the Colloquium are:

Structures of Inclusion:
This includes questions of student diversity, faculty diversity, research methodologies, scholar identities, inequality regimes and structures of exclusion.  Respondents identified an interest in reframing these regimes and structures toward equality and inclusion

Leadership:
Includes ways in which academic administrators (Provosts, Deans, Chairs) create supportive institutional cultures for community-engaged scholars, as well as professional development for administrators to be effective and supportive (of community engaged faculty) community-engaged campus leaders.

Student Outcomes:
Includes civic learning outcomes as well as outcomes around persistence, retention, and success.

Request for Proposals
The Center for Engaged Democracy is requesting proposals for research in any of the three research priorities areas listed above. CED will support research in these areas through three research grants of up to $5,000 per research project.

A PDF copy of the Request for Proposals (RFP) is available for download on the CED website at: http://www.engageddemocracy.org/uploads/1/3/7/5/13755214/request_for_research_proposals.pdf

The RFP must be submitted electronically via the following website:
http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1809925/2014-Lynton-Colloquium-RFRP

Proposals are due November 20, 2014, for research to be completed by August 2015 for presentation at the 2015 Lynton Colloquium in September 2015.  Up to three $5000 grants will be awarded.

2015 EJ Small Grants Request for Applicants

E-mail Print PDF

Announcing the 2015 EJ Small Grants Request for Applications

EPA's Office of Environmental Justice announces the opening of its Request for Applications (RFA) for the 2015 Environmental Justice Small Grants (EJSG) Program. The EJSG Program provides funding for eligible applicants for projects that address local environmental and/or public health issues within an affected community. The EJSG Program is designed to help eligible non-profit organizations and Tribal communities understand and address exposure to multiple environmental harms and risks at the local level.

EPA recognizes the critical role of helping communities with localized strategies to avoid, lessen, or delay the risks and impacts associated with our changing climate. As a result, this year's EJSG program will have a special emphasis on proposals supporting community-based preparedness and resilience efforts (community climate resiliency). In an effort to ensure that support reaches new areas, the Agency also is prioritizing funding to organizations that have not recently received an award under the EJSG Program.

The total estimated amount of funding available for awards under this solicitation for fiscal year 2015 is approximately $1,200,000. EPA anticipates awarding up to four grants per EPA region in amounts of up to $30,000 per award for a two-year project period. For more information regarding the Environmental Justice Small Grants Program and to view the RFA, please visit http://www.epa.gov/environmentaljustice/grants/ej-smgrants.html.
