John Saltmarsh, Director of the New England Resource Center for Higher Education (NERCHE), interviewed the three 2006 recipients of NERCHE's Ernest A. Lynton Award for the Scholarship of Engagement about their lives as engaged scholars and the implications of their work for the civic and global contexts for education, and for institutional change. *The format of constructing an interview 'conversation' was arrived at by the staff of the New England Resource Center for Higher Education as a way of weaving together the three separate papers written by the recipients into a rich narrative on the purposes and processes of scholarly engagement.
