Engagement Scholarship Program

**Please note: This program was active from Spring 2015 - Spring 2017.


The Engagement Scholarship Program was a multidisciplinary, professional community of practice focusing on the scholarship of engagement and concentrating on two specific categories of the scholarship of engagement: (1) Community-Based Research and (2) the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning relating to community-based pedagogy. Participants developed, planned, implemented, and prepared for public dissemination the results of their engaged scholarship efforts. Faculty members received a $2,000 stipend and a Community Engagement Travel Award up to $1,750 during the program to support a presentation of their Engagement Scholarship produced during the program at one of the international, national or regional professional conferences that focuses primarily on community engagement. (List of conferences is available.) The Engagement Scholarship Program was organized and implemented through a collaboration between the Center for Community-Based Learning and the Office of Faculty Enhancement (OFE)
