Engaged Scholarship
The academy must become a more vigorous partner in the search for answers to our most pressing social, civic, economic, and moral problems, and must reaffirm its historic commitment to what I call the scholarship of engagement.

-- Ernest Boyer, "The Scholarship of Engagement" (1996)


Engaged scholarship is defined by the collaboration between academics and individuals outside the academy--knowledge professionals and the lay public (local, regional/state, national, global)--for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity.


-- The New England Resource Center for Higher Education Website (2012)
