Faculty & Staff Engagement
Community engagement is an overarching commitment that can inform and enrich all three categories of faculty activity: service, research, and teaching. Faculty members who embody the ideal of community engagement integrate it into their teaching and their research, scholarly, and creative activities as well as those activities traditionally categorized as "service." Community engaged scholarship includes discovering, applying or synthesizing knowledge, skills or ideas in ways that shed light on social, civic or ethical problems or contribute to the well-being of communities and individuals. Community partners collaborate with engaged scholars by helping define the goals, scope and methods of a particular research or creative project.
