Spotlight on Engagement
Engaged Scholarship at UA
Community Affairs provides research seed funding, recognition programs, and the publication of the leading international peer-reviewed journal on the scholarship of community/university partnership and engagement, all of which support the efforts of faculty, staff, students, and community partners.
Engagement Scholarship Consortium
The University of Alabama is a member institution of the Engagement Scholarship Consortium (ESC), a non-profit educational organization, composed of higher education member institutions, a mix of state-public and private institutions. ESC's goal is to work collaboratively to build strong university-community partnerships anchored in the rigor of scholarship and designed to help build community capacity.
Journal of Community Engagement and Scholarship
The Journal of Community Engagement and Scholarship (JCES) is a peer-reviewed international journal through which faculty, staff, students, and community partners disseminate scholarly works. JCES integrates teaching, research, and community engagement in all disciplines, addressing critical problems identified through a community-participatory process.
Professional Growth and Development
The Division of Community Affairs offers a variety of programs that support the professional growth of UA’s faculty, staff, students, and community partners. These programs are grounded in the theoretical foundations of community engagement, built on the principles of authentic partnership, and designed to enhance participants’ scholarly work.
