Sharing Knowledge.


Share Your knowledge. Impact Communities.

We believe we have a responsibility to address the issues facing our communities, not for our benefit, but because it's the right thing to do for our society. We aim to connect others who are working on public issues to help share our collective knowledge in ways that are accessible to everyone, including language and collection. Our primary area of focus is in the Philadelphia region, and we hope you'll join us.

Tell Us About Your Public Work

We believe that everyone has the ability to be a scholar. If you are interested in sharing your knowledge with others about the public issues you are addressing in your work, we consider you a Public Scholar. We want you to connect with us and others at our colloquium October 12-13, 2017, and we hope that you'll consider submitting an abstract to share your knowledge with others.
