A Model of Public Scholarship That Integrates Professional Skills into Graduate Education
Knudson, Kandace M.; Gutstein, Joyce; Evans, Emily R.
Journal of Public Scholarship in Higher Education, v1 p109-131 2011
Graduate students education is falling short of what the twenty-first century demands from its next generation of leaders; indeed, many educational leaders and scholars have called for graduate education to include richer, more relevant experiences (Stanton & Wagner, 2006; Stewart, 2010; Walker, Jones, Bueschel, & Hutchings, 2008). At the University of California, Davis, we provide a rich set of professional development skills through a new program for graduate students who have an interest in environmentally based public scholarship--researching and collaborating with communities in order to solve real-world challenges. The purpose of this article is to illustrate and analyze the model, identifying ways the program is effectively delivering professional development to graduate students.
