Faculty Learning Community on Public Scholarship

Goals of the FLC on Public Scholarship

In collaboration with the senior associate vice chancellor for academic affairs, the Faculty Learning Community on Public Scholarship will complete the following goals over the next three years (2015–2018):

  • Read current scholarship and resources on public scholarship
  • Define public scholarship within the context of IUPUI
  • Convene, celebrate, and capture stories of public scholars across the disciplines
  • Make recommendations on campus policy and P&T guidelines relevant to public scholarship
  • Identify and share resources to support faculty in documenting public scholarship
  • Explore and leverage digital scholarship as a means to document public scholarship
  • Host events to increase awareness of public scholarship
  • Make scholarly presentations on the process and products generated by the FLC

What is public scholarship?

“IUPUI defines public scholarship as an intellectually and methodologically rigorous endeavor that is responsive to public audiences and public peer review. It is scholarly work that advances one or more academic disciplines by emphasizing co-production of knowledge with community stakeholders.”
