Three individuals with ties to the UW–Madison School of Education have been named to the fifth cohort of Morgridge Fellows. They are:
Khrysta A. Evans, PhD candidate, Department of Educational Policy Studies
- CJ Greer, PhD student, Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis
- Marquel Norton, PhD student, Department of Counseling Psychology
The 14 fellows — from across the campus community — were selected through a juried process to participate in a year-long learning community designed to further institutionalize and support community-engaged scholarship.
Community-engaged scholarship is defined as: teaching, research, and scholarly activities that are performed in equitable, mutually beneficial collaboration with communities to fulfill campus and community objectives. The program is led by Morgridge Center academic staff and guest speakers from campus and community perspectives.
The upcoming year will include sessions focused on developing and sustaining mutually beneficial community-university partnerships for Community-based Learning courses and research. In addition to receiving support for their classrooms, research, and other community-engaged projects, fellows will have the opportunity to build a unique interdisciplinary team of mentors and peers from the UW community.
