COE professor emerita inducted into Academy of Community Engagement Scholarship

Lorilee R. Sandmann, professor emerita of lifelong education, administration and policy in the College of Education, was inducted into the Academy of Community Engagement Scholarship.

Sandmann, who is editor of the Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, was recognized for her research, publications, teaching and leadership. Her research, which consistently has been theory-driven, studies the relationship between the different perspectives and voices of engagement: faculty as scholars, students as future scholars, community partners as co-creators of knowledge and institutional leaders as influential advocates for community engagement.

Founded in 2014, ACES is a consortium of leading community engagement scholars and practitioners who are recognized for advancing scholarship that serves the public good.
