Building off of the speakers’ article in JSSWR regarding public impact scholarship, the aim of this session is to identify opportunities for social work to make greater public impact as a discipline. We extend the definition of public impact scholarship to include research questions and methods, not only translation and dissemination. We will review institutional challenges to public impact scholarship, including university culture, levers for impact (or lack thereof), and academic values, and discuss promising approaches to the promotion of public impact scholarship through mentorship, direct support, promotion and tenure, and capacity building.
