In this talk to the university and CCTSI community, Dr. Andy Hoffman, the Holcim Professor of
Sustainable Enterprise at the University of Michigan, will speak about the crisis in the relevance
of academic scholarship to public and political discourse.
His book The Engaged Scholar: Expanding the Impact of Academic Research in Today’s World
speaks to the need for academics to break out of their siloed research communities and bring
their work to a world that needs it. Dr. Hoffman will outline the set of skills and the use of
platforms that can reach audiences beyond the walls of the academy.
All registrants will receive a free eBook copy of The Engaged Scholar: Expanding the Impact of Academic Research in
Today’s World with registration.
