The Swearer Center for Public Service at Brown University and the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities (CUMU) are eager to announce the annual Ernest A. Lynton Award for the Scholarship of Engagement for Early Career Faculty. The Lynton Award honors a pre-tenure* faculty member who connects their teaching, research, and service and advances institutional commitment to community engagement.
Community engagement describes the collaboration between faculty and their larger communities (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a
context of partnership and reciprocity. —Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching
This year’s award will be presented at the 23rd Annual Conference of the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities (CUMU), “Charting the Future of Metropolitan Universities,” which will be held from October 23-25, 2016 in Washington, DC.
The Swearer Center and CUMU are co-sponsors of the Ernest A. Lynton Award for the Scholarship of Engagement for Early Career Faculty.
