Faculty development has been identified as a means of enhancing the ability of faculty members at higher education institutions to conduct scholarly engagement with community partners. The University of New Hampshire developed a semester-long Outreach Scholars Academy to help faculty partner with key external stakeholders in conducting research that will benefit the public and to enhance an engagement ethos across the campus. Faculty were selected through a competitive nomination and selection process. The outreach scholars work to learn and apply concepts of engagement through lectures, case studies, panel discussions, and reflection about their own project work. This program is supported by a national expert, engaged faculty experts, coaches, and the use of critical friends. Results indicate that faculty have gained a greater understanding of how to work with external and community partners, conduct scholarly research, and communicate their work to others as a scholarly endeavor.
