Broader Impacts, Community Engagement, Public Participation: How Community Engagement Strengthens Your Grant and Your Project
November 21st at 9:30am
Gottwald Science Center Conference Room D100

The Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) and Foundation, Corporate, & Government Relations Office (FCGR) are teaming up to help you better understand ‘broader impacts/community engagement/public access and participation’ components within grants and offer insights on how strengthening these components can make your grant proposals more competitive. FCGR will offer their expertise on grant requirements (what do these phrases mean for funders, how do you incorporate them into your applications, and are there samples available?). The CCE will help you think through the community-engagement process (how do you find community partners, how do you structure a community-based program, and what resources exist at the University that can allow your community-engaged program to survive beyond the grant?). This workshop is aimed at those who already have a research project and are looking to add a community-engaged component, as well as those who are already doing community-engagement and looking at how that can fit into their research project.
