Institutional Perspectives: Finding the Balance--Reflections on Service Engagement in Faculty and Campus Development.
Stevens, Margaret Carnes; Jamison, J. R.
Journal of Public Scholarship in Higher Education, v2 p15-30 2012
Creating an engaged campus is a process that takes support, resources, and programs from all levels of a college or university campus. While some may argue that sustainable change is only possible when directed by university administration, others counter that nothing is sustainable if faculty and staff are not empowered to implement the programs. Based on a reflective analysis of Indiana Campus Compact's program development over the past 20 years, the authors argue the importance of growing and maintaining an engaged campus from a holistic model. Such a balanced, collaborative approach to building and sustaining an engagement culture in higher education is illustrated and defended through examples of effective strategy and a discussion of the roles of institutional and community constituents.
