Community-Engaged Scholarship: Toward a Shared Understanding of Practice
da Cruz, Cynthia Gordon
Review of Higher Education, v41 n2 p147-167 Win 2018
Community-engaged scholarship (CES) is frequently recommended as a postsecondary practice for producing knowledge to address real-world issues and support the public good. But CES has multiple meanings, and understandings overlap with similar terms, such as publicly engaged scholarship. I draw upon recommendations in the field to propose an integrated definition and articulate six components of CES; this framework can elucidate the practice for those new to the field and provide a foundation for current CES practitioners to share recommendations across disciplines, measure outcomes, and engage in future research and theory-building. I conclude with theorizing a new term "critical community-engaged scholarship."
