Dr. Alison Colbert's Journal Club

  • 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
  • CETR Conference Room, 20 Chatham Square Murphy Building

The CETR journal club intends to be a space where faculty and community partners can come together and learn about community-engaged scholarship. Each meeting will begin with a brief 10 minute presentation of a paper, followed by group discussion. The presentation and discussion will pay particular attention to the components of the work that are about community engagement. Refreshments will be provided. If you have any questions or if you like to RSVP, please contact us at cetr@duq.edu or call us at x5893

A critical component of community-engaged scholarship and practice is participating in conversations about policy issues. Dr. Colbert will talk about writing editorials, op-eds, and responses to research as ways to bridge research and policy work, using examples from her work related to health and well-being for populations involved with the criminal justice system. These shorter (but peer-reviewed) articles provide an opportunity for community-engaged scholars to translate findings into action recommendations.
