Seeking students, scholars, researchers, activists, community leaders, and dreamers interested in doing public scholarship. Public scholarship is about organizing people, resources, and ideas for the greater good. It’s about engaging with our communities.
University of Houston is now part of Imagining America, a movement committed to doing scholarly work that positively impacts the communities of which we are a part. By joining the Imagining America network in Spring 2021, we have embraced a commitment to “connecting, convening, supporting, and promoting engaged and public scholars.”
Our work includes organizing around cultural change on our Houston campuses and in our communities, both nationally and here in the Gulf Coast region. Won’t you join us?
