Scholarly Research & Teaching

Why Scholarly Research and Teaching?

The Scholarly Research & Teaching track is designed for individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in academia. Participants will learn research-based practices for teaching in transnational, globalized classrooms, especially in the areas of health and human sciences; strategies to enhance research and writing skills in a variety of genres; and other areas that contribute to a successful career in higher education. Faculty guest speakers from UMB as well as other institutions will facilitate interactive workshops and presentations and provide resources to further explore a career in research and teaching.

Why Community Engagement?

Leaders in health, policy, and human services are increasingly compelled to partner with communities to effect positive change. Changes in health funding and shifting expectations of corporate citizenship demand emerging leaders to integrate social justice and cultural sensitivity with technical savvy. In this track, student leaders will learn from, and with, community leaders about power, race, and positive change.

In this track participants will have the opportunity to critically think about and develop their professional brand. Guest speakers will present on interviewing techniques and teach valuable tools for navigating job searches, interviews, and much more. 

All of the Elective sessions will be in the Community Engagement Center:
