Faculty Service Roles and the Scholarship of Engagement. ASHE-ERIC Higher Education Report. Jossey-Bass Higher and Adult Education Series.
This volume provides the guidance needed to continue the institutionalization of E. Boyer's concept of "scholarship reconsidered." The scholarship of teaching appears to be the area in which institutions have made the fewest advances, although many faculty members are developing scholarship that applies concepts and provides service to the field of teaching. This monograph provides a strong introduction to the service role of faculty and the concept of engagement through a detailed historical review of the faculty role. The chapters are: (1) "Contemporary Contexts for Service: The Engaged Campus"; (2) "The Legacy of Service in Higher Education"; (3) "Internal Service: Faculty at Work as Institutional and Disciplinary Citizens"; (4) "External Service: Faculty at Work Meeting Societal Needs"; (5) "Linking Service to Scholarship"; (6) "Moving toward Engagement: Policy Questions and Their Responses"; and (7) "Recommendations for Research and Practice." (Contains 262 references.) (SLD)
