Deborah Weatherston joins University Outreach and Engagement at Michigan State University

Deborah Weatherston, PhD has been invited to join University Outreach and Engagement at Michigan State University as a Community Senior Fellow. “Throughout its 150 year history, Michigan State University has been deeply committed to public scholarship, working collaboratively with community partners to address socially significant issues… We cannot achieve this aspect of our mission unless community voices are actively involved in shaping community focus. Community work requires innovative and creative thinking in order to develop community systems that enable collaborative networks to form and to be sustained.” Community Senior Fellows will, “help shape the short- and long-term objectives of Michigan State University’s outreach and engagement mission, focusing on cutting edge issues related to community development, particularly in the areas of health, education, safety, positive youth development, families, and economic advancement.”
