This paper reflects on strategies employed by a private, faith-based school of public health to integrate community-engaged scholarship into its institutional fabric. The school, a member of the Community-Engaged Scholarship for health Collaborative, followed Kotter's eight steps to leading organizational changed at favoring intentional community engagement that resulted in a broader university-wide effect. The authors describe how this model was implemented, and the lessons learned include recognizing the role that students, faculty, and administrators play in promoting community-engaged scholarship.
