Engage@NKU is a series of engaging and interactive learning gatherings hosted by Northern Kentucky University's Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement. The goal of this series is to strengthen educational and service-based partnerships.
Participants will enjoy a complimentary hot breakfast and hear about NKU’s community engagement commitment. The series will:
• Highlight successful practices and partnerships in service learning and community engagement.
• Provide networking opportunities to facilitate beneficial campus-community alliances.
• Explore and identify how academic research and service learning can meet the needs of the community.
Do you have a book idea? The University Press of Kentucky (UPK) can help advise you on the best way to help you get it into print. UPK Director Leila Salisbury will speak on the economics, editorial, and other aspects of modern scholarly book publishing. Take advantage of the one-on-one sessions to discuss your book idea with Leila. She’ll be able to tell you if your concept or project is a fit for UPK or, if not, suggest other potential publishers.
