Community Engaged Scholars Network (CESN)
The Community Engaged Scholars Network (CESN) serves faculty, researchers, and teaching staff that are committed to campus-community partnerships, community-based research, service-learning, and other forms of public scholarship and engagement. The network will serve as a forum for information sharing regarding funding opportunities, colleague and community collaboration, recognition events, conference RFPs, and other pertinent items for members of the UWM community who play a key role in helping the institution fulfill its civic mission. The CESN will provide electronic and face-to-face information to its members.
This initiative is co-sponsored by the Center for Community-Based Learning, Leadership, and Research, the School of Education’s Office of Engaged Research, and the Cultures and Communities Program.

The CESN Listserv is operated by the Center for Community-Based Learning, Leadership, and Research. Announcements will be sent monthly to the list from information collected by the Center from on- and off-campus partners. Those on the list will be sent the following types of information:
- Calls for proposals and conference announcements
- Funding opportunity announcements
- UWM events aimed at connecting members with other members of the network
- Networking events that will be held for members each semester
- Community agency requests when a specific need arises
- UWM assessment data related to civic engagement and public scholarship
Each semester members of the CESN will be invited to a networking or outreach event where they can:
- Meet fellow faculty from other academic departments who are working on similar community issues and research
- Meet non-profit partners who are engaged in issues which members of the CESN are interested
- Engage in faculty reading groups that focus on foundational texts and new, innovative work and research in the public scholarship arena
- Learn about emerging trends and scholarship in the field
