National Collaborative for the Study of University Engagement
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.
