Information about Jaime Menon:
Not every community will start their journey to vitality and development at the same place. That’s why we’ve developed a model for community opportunity and success. Join Jaime Menon, State Program Leader for Community Vitality through K-State Research and Extension (KSRE), to learn about the Community Vitality Pathway – highlighting the resources that KSRE has to offer to meet any community where they are in their journey. From community assessments, grant writing and business support, to developing your local leaders, we’ve got the tools to help your community navigate toward success.
Information about Tim Steffensmeier:
The K-State Office of Engagement connects Kansans and communities beyond to access the resources and expertise of a land-grant University. Our purpose is to promote engagement across the breadth of our campus – in teaching, research, and outreach – and to connect the vast resources of K-State to the significant issues of public need facing Kansas and communities worldwide. Our core services:
- Connect K-State’s expertise to the needs of Kansas by partnering with communities, businesses, and organizations
- Coordinate and promote engaged scholarly activities across the university
- Communicate the relevance and impact of this work to Kansans and beyond
Engagement emphasizes community and university partnerships – through research, teaching and service – where groups collaborate on important issues in mutually beneficial ways.
Who should attend?
Researchers, students, and educators who want to share experiences, make connections, and gain skills in community engaged research (CEnR) are invited to attend.
We offer virtual roundtables quarterly to give researchers, students, and educators a place to share experiences, make connections, and gain skills in community engaged research (CEnR). These roundtables are sponsored by the ARISE project, a major investment in Kansas by the U.S. National Science Foundation Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR RII Track-1). The ARISE acronym stands for “Adaptive and Resilient Infrastructures driven by Social Equity.”
