A Conceptual Model to Explore Faculty Community Engagement
Wade, Amy; Demb, Ada
Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning, v15 n2 p5-16 Spr 2009
This article presents a holistic approach to understanding the activities that constitute faculty engagement. After setting an historical context for the public service roles of faculty, the authors define specific activities involving service-learning, community-based research, and certain forms of professional service as the most relevant to engagement because of their direct connection to the teaching, research and service functions of the professoriate. The article presents the Faculty Engagement Model (FEM), which results from a broad literature review and offers a comprehensive perspective outlining the personal, professional, and institutional factors likely to predict engagement participation.
