overview
Overview
  • Define the “hats” worn by our STBF-UNC Partners to engage in the scholarship of eliminating health disparities among African American communities in North Carolina.
  • Share tools that the STBF-UNC Partnership has developed to anticipate when to “cock one’s hat” and embrace the necessary conflict of community engagement.
  • Discuss lessons learned about challenges that are necessary for achieving equity in partnership.
hats to wear to the table
Proven track record of staying “at the Table” long enough to learn

How the community/system works

How to make the community/system work

Sending appropriate representatives “to the Table”

Not too junior

Can respect each person’s right to disagree and speak honestly

Anticipate and accommodate necessary conflict

Different pathways for achieving the same goal

Time and resources to work on the relationship are constant

Hats to Wear to The Table
when to cock your hat at the table
Eliminate demeaning language, such as Those People

Agree on terms for holding each other accountable for

Being present and actively representing their partner organizations

Tangible products that build the capacity of each partner to move forward

Assume that important terms, such as community and health disparities, are not defined and used by each partner in the same way as you do.

When to Cock Your Hat at The Table
we define health disparities as
inequities in disease and well-being that come from discrimination and unequal access to society’s benefits, such as quality education, good jobs, decent and affordable housing, safe neighborhoods and environments, nutritious foods, and healthcare. These inequities result in disproportionately higher rates of death, disease, and disability and have adverse consequences on the physical, mental, spiritual and social well-being of population groups who, historically and currently, do not experience equivalent social advantage. These groups include, for example, African Americans, American Indians, Hispanics/Latinos, Asian Americans, Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders, people with disabilities, Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender/Queer persons, and people with lower incomes. We define health disparities as…

3 Major Elements Determine the Criteria for Faculty Appointment, Promotion, and Tenure at UNC School of Public Health

Research, or the creation of new knowledge pertinent to public health

Teaching, or the dissemination of knowledge to students, health professionals, and the public

Practice, or the advancement of the innovative application of knowledge (and the evaluation of the impact of this application) to enhance the health of the public

Promotion & Tenurein Engaged Scholarship
promotion tenure in engaged scholarship1
Promotion & Tenurein Engaged Scholarship

For promotion and tenure on the basis of public health practice, innovative application of knowledge must be deemed to be “scholarly.” That is, the practice must be shown to have affected not only a given policy, community, agency or program, but it must also be shown that the practice has in some way contributed to advancing the state-of-the-art of public health practice itself. Evidence of accomplishment in application of knowledge should be provided for one or more major projects. As rank increases, it is expected that both the quantity and quality of practice will also increase.

Promotion & Tenurein Engaged Scholarship
lessons learned
Acknowledge that each partner brings not only different worldviews, skill sets, and access to resources, but also different pathways for achieving the same goal.

Ensure reciprocal accountability,

Assume nothing, listen, expect to accommodate conflict

Send people to The Table, who have high tolerance for ambiguity and people who “talk back,” and are open to co-learning

Time and resources required to work on the relationship are constant, with the rewards being those of an enduring commitment to stay in the partnership.
