    Description:

    The National Collaborative for the Study of University Engagement was developed to stimulate a greater understanding of how university engagement enhances faculty scholarship and community progress. The center addresses the full spectrum of issues surrounding faculty outreach and engagement work, including:

    • Defining outreach and engagement and seeking national alignment on the meaning and scope of the nomenclature.
    • Assessing faculty perceptions of their outreach and engagement work and how they compare to the University's outreach and engagement mission.
    • Developing measurement and benchmarking criteria for outreach and engagement (locally and nationally).
    • Studying processes and impacts of university-community collaborations.
    • Analyzing community contributions to engagement and scholarship.
    • Investigating practices and policies that enable universities and colleges to weave outreach and engagement into their institutional fabric and faculty promotion and tenure systems.
    • Providing incentives for faculty to evaluate their work as engaged scholars.
    • Defining areas of ongoing research.
    • Conducting literature reviews and writing for Web site dissemination.
    • Presenting and publishing the Center's work.

    The site offers documents, archived and future conferences and events, tools for measurement and assessment, and links to national initiatives.
