    2014 Lynton Colloquium at UMass Boston

    9:00am-3:30pmUniversity of Massachusetts Boston (100 William T Morrissey Boulevard Boston, MA 02125)

    On Monday, September 15, 2014, the New England Resource Center for Higher Education (NERCHE) will host its 3rd Annual Lynton Colloquium on the Scholarship of Engagement at the University of Massachusetts Boston.  The event will build upon the success of the 2013 Colloquium, where nearly 150 faculty and higher education administrators from New England (and beyond) gathered to reflect upon the pioneering work of Ernest A. Lynton and the legacy of his contributions to publicly engaged scholarship.

    The 3rd Annual Lynton Colloquium will feature a keynote presentation by the recipient of the 2014 Lynton Award (to be announced in August 2014). It will also help launch a new research initiative co- sponsored by New England Resource Center for Higher Education (NERCHE) and the Center for Engaged Democracy (CED). Grounded in the work of NERCHE’s Next Generation Engagement project and the CED’s focus on academic programs in civic engagement, this initiative aims to identify key issues in the field and sponsor research working groups on each of them. The goal is to foster sustained and systematic investigations and documented outcomes that will support deeper understandings of and clearer actions around such issues.  More information about the 2014 Colloquium can be foundhere.
