Engaged Scholarship

Engaged Scholarship seeks to discover new knowledge through activities that collaboratively generate, exchange, or apply academic and community knowledge and practices through reciprocal partnerships among members of the University and members of the broader public. 

This often includes methods or approaches such as community-based participatory research (CBPR), engaged action research, and research-practice partnerships (RPPs), etc., and results in the public dissemination of new knowledge through academic publications, policy recommendations, technical reports, co-created exhibitions and creative pieces, and joint projects that benefit the community and the university.
