Considerations on the Scholarship of Engagement as an Area of Specialization for Faculty
Fogel, Sondra J.; Cook, James R.
Journal of Social Work Education, v42 n3 p595-606 Fall 2006
At institutions of higher education across the United States, faculty have increasing opportunities to define their research and teaching activities as components of the evolving "scholarship of engagement" field. Using an "interpersonal relationship" framework outlined by Bringle and Hatcher (2002), this article presents some of the challenges inherent in this work from the viewpoint of two faculty members involved in a university-community partnership project. In addition, we suggest how this work can contribute to furthering our knowledge about these emerging collaborations.
