Registration is now open for the 2021 Community Engaged Scholarship Forum.

On Tuesday, March 2, the University of Pittsburgh will celebrate the diversity and impact of community-engaged work at Pitt and in the surrounding region with the third annual Community Engaged Scholarship Forum (CESF), “Progress Through Partnerships: Advancing Community Resilience.”

Part of Pitt’s Year of Engagement, the CESF will provide an opportunity for faculty, students, staff and community members to present their community-engaged work, discover new avenues of partnership, network with those who do similar work and celebrate Pitt's commitment to community engagement.

This year’s forum will address the following themes: basic needs, civic participation, digital access and inclusion, education, health equity, criminal justice reform, relationships and our social fabric.

Featured speakers include Michelle Fine, City University of New York; Tania Mitchell, University of Minnesota; Chris Nayve, University of San Diego; Al Richmond, Community-Campus Partnerships for Health; Frederick Riley, Weave, the Social Fabric Project; and Douglas Wood, The Aspen Institute’s Criminal Justice Reform Initiative,

In addition to hosting workshops and poster sessions, the forum also serves as the venue to honor projects with awards including the Senior Vice Chancellor for Engagement Partnership of Distinction, the Soska Wilds Outreach and Engagement Leadership and the CESF Collaboration Champion awards.

The free event will take place online and it is open to the public. Learn more and register on the CESF website.
