Community-Engaged Scholarship: Critical Junctures in Research, Practice, and Policy
Wenger, Lisa; Hawkins, Linda; Seifer, Sarena D.
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v16 n1 p171-181 Mar 2012
Community-engaged scholarship and community-academic partnerships are gaining momentum in higher education institutions. Federal research funding agencies in Canada have moved aggressively toward increasing support for community-engaged research and knowledge mobilization efforts. Yet there is a well-articulated disjuncture between calls for social relevance, knowledge translation and mobilization, community-based research, service-learning, and engagement more broadly; and the resources, structures, and policies in Canadian universities. In November 2010, the University of Guelph and Community-Campus Partnerships for Health convened national and international leaders from diverse organizational and disciplinary backgrounds to consider what is known about community-engaged scholarship in higher education and its implications for future research, practice, and policy. Participants identified conceptual challenges, values and tensions, opportunities for action, and resources to support community-engaged scholarship.
