The Center for Engaged Scholarship provides mechanisms for faculty in all disciplines to extend their research and scholarly expertise beyond the university. The Center's activities include securing funding for research and teaching partnerships between faculty and community groups; organizing symposia that include participants from both within and outside academia; and working to create a university infrastructure that recognizes and rewards engaged scholarship. The aim is to unify two university goals: strengthening research and engaging with the community.
