Effective Engagement: Lessons from Faculty Roles in Community Involvement
AbstractThe role of individual faculty in community service at institutions of higher education has been less studied due to its association with personal volunteer work. This paper suggests that such service should be viewed as an integral part of engagement, particularly when it contributes to positive change and problem resolution in urban communities. Three examples of such involvement are presented as modified case studies, highlighting work of faculty at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
