IUPUI Welcomes Dr. Cathy Jordan
One of the biggest challenges in advancement related to community-engaged research, scholarship, and creative activity is peer review. Peer review is the backbone of distinguishing quality in scholarly work. Community-engaged work invites an expansive view of peers and peer review that many traditional scholars are unfamiliar with. The lack of familiarity can create challenges for candidates as well as for well-intentioned colleagues attempting to evaluate the quality and rigor of engaged scholarship.
To help us analyze the state of peer review in community-engaged scholarship and how we approach it with new eyes, the Public Scholarship Faculty Learning Community and Academic Affairs will host Dr. Cathy Jordan in the spring of 2019.
