Community Partnerships for Teaching, Research and Service

In Scholarship Reconsidered, the late Ernest Boyer contends that in addition to valuing the generation of knowledge (the traditional definition of scholarship), higher education should also support the application of knowledge through faculty engagement in community-based research, teaching and service (Boyer, 1990). Community-engaged scholarship can apply to teaching (e.g. service-learning, research (e.g. community-based participatory research), and service (e.g. community service, outreach, advocacy). The University of Louisville has multiple resources for information about faculty/ staff engagement, student engagement and is developing an emerging consensus about the importance of engaged scholarship.
