Abstract

Structuring an environment to support learning through engagement can enrich the learning experience; can allow for scholarship opportunities; and can support development within the region. Structuring an environment to support learning through engagement can support the university achieving its mission. How? Effectively implementing a program of engagement throughout the learning environment suggests that the university has an infrastructure in place to support the institutionalization. This infrastructure for learning through engagement must support not only student learning and f acuity scholarship, but also address the specific needs of the partnering organizations.
