Community Engaged Scholarship
Community engaged scholarship can be found in teaching, research and/or service. It is academically relevant work that simultaneously addresses disciplinary concerns and fulfills campus and community objectives. It involves sharing authority with community partners in the development of goals and approaches, as well as the conduct of work and its dissemination. It should involve critical review by discipline-specific peers, community partners and the public.
- Engaged Scholarship Advisory Committee, 2012
Some of CTCC’s flagship work has included the development of a framework and interactive research tool for community engaged scholarship (CES) .
Our Engaged Scholarship Advisory Committee (ESAC) has published ‘A Framework for Community Engaged Scholarship’.
The purpose of this publication is to provide a framework for defining, describing, and assessing community engaged scholarship (CES) and offer examples found in areas of teaching, research and service. Existing institutional guidelines are provided in support of a reconsideration of both the structure and culture of a campus, optimally resulting in the recognition and rewarding of CES.
The very nature of CES promotes its successful expression in teaching, research, and/or service.
