Institutionalizing Faculty Engagement through Research, Teaching, and Service at Research Universities
Moore, Tami L.; Ward, Kelly
Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning, v17 n1 p44-58 Fall 2010
Institutionalizing engagement, especially at research universities, calls for thinking beyond service-learning and the teaching mission. We conducted interviews with 20 faculty members at 15 research institutions in the United States who integrate teaching, research, and service in a community-focused scholarly agenda to support the civic missions of their institutions. Major findings highlight supports and barriers for faculty involvement in community-engaged work, and thereby link directly to discussions of the structures and leadership required for changing institutional policies and practices related to integration and engagement. We conclude by offering recommendations for practice and further research to support institutionalizing community engagement. (Contains 1 note and 2 tables.)
