Dr. Watson and her colleagues from Rutgers University analyzed data on how to practice high-impact equity using a toolkit. The toolkit provides a process practitioners can follow to become more equity-minded in their use of HIPs. Designed to ensure that students from all racial and ethnic groups are taking equal advantages of HIPs. It provides methods to assess: equal representation, equal access, and equal impact. They also created a report that's useful to interrogate whether there are equity gaps in your student engagement practices. Some of those practices being
1. Interrogate Policies and Practices
2. Race-conscious engagement practices

As you consider options for students to complete service projects remotely, be sure to START by examining how many students still need to serve. The good and great Rachel Talbert has made a helpful video reviewing how to get a summary of service of all students in your course and how many service hours each has already reported. For students who still have service to do, the next step is to remind them to report their service on GWServes, which you can do directly from the GWServes platform itself. This will help you determine the extent to which alternative service options are needed. Link to tutorial video.
The Journal has five main sections: (1) Advances in Theory and Methodology; (2) Community Partnerships and Impacts; (3) Faculty Roles and Institutional Issues; (4) International Service-Learning and Community Engagement Research; and (5) Student Outcomes – Primary, Secondary, and Higher Education.

Registration is now open for the 2020 IUPUI Research Academy.
"Convened from May 13-15, 2020 on the IUPUI campus, the Research Academy is an intense, interactive 3-day workshop designed to develop research, assessment, and evaluation skills, learn about methods, and develop a research and/or assessment project on high impact practices or other engaged learning. Convened since 2009, the Research Academy historically focused on service learning research. However, beginning in 2019 the Research Academy has expanded its scope to cover other types of high impact practices and engaged learning (e.g., themed learning communities, ePortfolios, global engagement)."

Imagining America: Artists and Scholars in Public Life and Tulane University has announced their 2020 National Gathering will be held October 9-11 in New Orleans, less than one month before the national Presidential election. The two organizations will work with local institutions and leaders in organizing this dynamic national conference.
"The Imagining America (IA) Gathering is an annual convening of public scholars, artists, students, designers, and leaders who are addressing critical public issues through creative cultural organizing, collaborative research, and engaged learning. The conference offers participants a three-day immersive experience in which to connect, dialogue, learn, and strategize around the ways to build new knowledge and inspire collective imagination towards transformative education and action.
New Orleans will serve as a powerful context in which to showcase local and global work around this year’s Gathering themes of displacement and movements."
This year, the Engagement Scholarship Consortium 2020 Conference Planning Committee is particularly encouraging student participation in the conference: September 15-16, 2020, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
"Students are invited to submit a proposal for a poster to be presented at the 2020 conference, detailing impactful community engagement through research or service work. Delivering a poster at an international conference is a unique academic experience and is an excellent addition to a résumé or graduate school application."
Please circulate this call for posters to students whose experiences support the conference's theme of "Envisioning Engaged Scholarship
" and can help us explore our many diverse futures together.
