Logo for the Engagement Scholarship Consortium Conference

Penn State is hosting the 2015 Engagement Scholarship Consortium Conference, September 27– 30, at the Penn Stater Conference Center, University Park and Schreyer Institute consultant are part of the action.

"This is an exciting time for Penn State to be hosting this event because it dovetails nicely with the Engaged Scholarship Initiative, which has set a goal that all Penn State graduates have had at least one engaged scholarship experience by the year 2020," comments Suzanne Weinstein, director of Instructional Consulting, Assessment, and Research at the Schreyer Institute. Engaged scholarship at Penn State refers to out-of-classroom academic experiences that are connected to a course, such as undergraduate research, study abroad, study away, embedded travel courses, community-based learning, service learning, internships, and capstone experiences.
