On November 14, 2015, NERCHE and the Center for Engaged Democracy hosted the Annual Lynton Colloquium on the Scholarship of Engagement on the UMass Boston campus.  The event featured research presentations (see below) by the 2015 Advancing Current Critical Issues in Community Engagement Research grant recipients, as well as a keynote presentation by the national recipient of the 2015 Lynton Award. Colloquium participants will have an opportunity to openly and collaboratively discuss the "critical issues in the field" for 2016 and beyond.

The annual colloquium continues to be inspired by Dr. Ernest Lynton, who framed faculty scholarly activity as inclusive and collaborative work in which academics and community partners share knowledge and expertise in the process of public problem solving.
