The Public Scholarship, Community Engagement, and Sustainability Colloquium is a recurring opportunity for faculty and students from Penn State and other universities to come together to discuss critical issues involving our university, nation, and world. Sponsored by Penn State University and PA Campus Compact, the colloquium serves as a vehicle to share our experiences in public scholarship across campuses and organizations.
Among the thematic issues the colloquium seeks to explore are those relating to civic participation and non-participation, sustainability, social justice, storytelling and dialogue, and power. Of equal interest are practice stories from the field that highlight democratic engagement initiatives and projects in such areas as, but not restricted to:
- economic and community development
- community health and nutrition
- educational partnerships and reform
- environmental and natural resource management and policy
- community capacity-building and empowerment
