Recognizing Engaged Scholarship through the Promotion, Tenure, and Review Process


Keynote Speaker

Dr. Stephen M. Gravazzi

Dean and Director of The Ohio State University at Mansfield

Dr. Stephen Gavazzi, a national expert on families and adolescents, described a program of engaged scholarship which he and his community partners developed to divert adolescents from state systems (like juvenile justice and the courts) to family-focused, strength-building interventions. His efforts have resulted in high impact scholarship, a nationally recognized model, and positive community outcomes.
