A panel discussion with scholars from diverse disciplines whose research involves community collaboration.* How do notions of CBPR, Engaged Scholarship, PAR, Community Engaged Planning, etc. vary by discipline and department? How is such work conceptualized, theorized and practiced in different fields? What current projects are faculty and graduate students working on? This workshop will seek to answer these questions through a panel discussion with faculty and graduate students from a diverse set of disciplines to share what engaged scholarship looks like in their field, including examples from their own teaching and scholarship.
**Snacks will be provided!**

*Community-engaged scholarship goes by many different names: Community-based participatory research (CBPR); Participatory action research (PAR); Participatory planning; Service learning courses, etc. Whatever terms we all use, each involves collaborations with communities outside academia for research and/or teaching.
