Cruz, Laura; Ellern, Gillian D.; Ford, George; Moss, Hollye; White, Barbara Jo

This study analyzes the translation of the Boyer scholarship model (with an emphasis on the scholarship of engagement) into departmental and college-level culture at a regional comprehensive institution. Through an analysis of promotion and tenure documents, the authors concluded that adoption of Boyer's model was a semi-radical process, characterized by unique definitional, conceptual, and logistical challenges that resulted in a diverse array of practices and approaches across the university's departments and colleges.
