Michigan State University’s College of Education will host the Engaged Scholar Speaker Series during the Spring 2020 semester. The series features six scholars who conduct scholarship in ways that directly benefit the schools and community-based organizations they serve. Engaged scholarship can take on many forms, and this speaker series is designed to reflect this diversity.  The speakers themselves work in an array of professional capacities—from district leaders to professors to entrepreneurs to center directors.

All lectures take place in Erickson Hall, Room 133F. This lecture series is open to the public. The Engaged Scholar Speaker Series is sponsored by the Department of Counseling, Educational Psychology, and Special Education.
