Institute for Incorporating Community Engaged Teaching & Scholarship in Promotion & Tenure

Photo: See attached for a document with head shots and descriptions of our opening speaker and panelists. Registration is now open for the ICETS Institute on Wednesday, November 15th at American University from 12:00pm – 3:30pm. Campus teams are able to register on EventBrite as individuals or a team of 5.

Purpose: Invited participants, Chief Academic Officers, and campus teams from institutions across Maryland, DC, and Delaware, will review and give recommendations on the report on “Incorporating Community Engaged Teaching and Scholarship in Promotion and Tenure.”

Background: Over the past semester, Campus Compact Mid-Atlantic convened a Taskforce to develop a global set of criteria to blend community engaged teaching and scholarship into existing promotion and tenure standards appropriate to each category of higher education (public, private, 2-year, 4-year). The Taskforce also recommends potential steps for implementing the set of criteria into institutions’ promotion and tenure policies and procedures. The Campus Compact Mid-Atlantic Board is inviting each member institution's Chief Academic Officer and their selected campus team members to review this report and give further recommendations. Campuses are encouraged to bring a team to the institute to discuss how this can be achieved at their campus. Sponsorships are available for campuses bringing a team:

Bronze sponsors may pay and register directly on Eventbrite. Gold and Silver sponsors will receive registration codes when their invoice is sent.

For more information or to sponsor, please contact Corinne DeRoberts, Associate Director of Programs, at deroberts@ccmidatlantic.org or 301.696.3279.
