Engaging Scholarship for Public Impact

Goal:

KU will engage local, state, national, and global communities as partners in scholarly activities that have direct public impact.

Outcomes:

  1. Recognition, facilitation, and support of engaged scholarship.
  2. Mutually productive partnerships with the community for engaged scholarship.
  3. Learning and scholarship experiences for students.
  4. Increase in scholarly activities by leveraging existing community engagement activities.

Examples:

The work group on Engaging Scholarship for Public Impact (ESPI) is in the process of gathering examples of work by KU researchers who are conducting engaged scholarship. We are looking for recently completed and ongoing projects that are consistent with the work group's goal:

KU will engage in local, state, national, and global communities as partners in scholarly activities that have direct public impact.

Included below are some excellent examples of engaged scholarship. If you would like your work added, please use the web form below. There is a great deal of exciting work going on at KU and this is one way to share you work with the campus community.

Travel to New York and perform on one of the greatest stages in the nation? KU's Wind Ensemble did just that. In March 2013, the University of Kansas Wind Ensemble made the trip of a lifetime to perform the world premiere of composer Mohammed Fairouz’s Symphony No. 4, In the Shadow of No Towers at Carnegie Hall. http://bit.ly/1nXMXr9 Tags: University of Kansas Wind Ensemble KU School of Music Carnegie Hall #KUdifference #music #symphony
Journey to Carnegie Hall
One of America’s most esteemed concert bands, the University of Kansas Wind Ensemble, came to Carnegie Hall to introduce a commissioned work with the potential to resonate well beyond the usual college circuit... - New York Times review

Boy with autism benefits from KU student’s undergraduate research Two-year-old Mark’s first haircut in a salon was pretty traumatic. He screamed. He cried. His dad had to restrain him – Mark has autism and a haircut wasn’t part of his routine. But there’s a happy ending. The experience led KU senior Kristin Miller to seek an Undergraduate Research Award (see http://bit.ly/1xod9VT) to develop ways for children with developmental disabilities like Mark to learn how to accept routine health care treatment, such as going to the dentist — or even getting a buzz cut. Watch the video to see why it has been especially rewarding for Miller to help children like Mark.
