While the terms “scholarship of engagement” or “engaged scholarship” — the terms are interchangeable — has been around for years, they may not be familiar to everyone. First used by Ernest Boyer in a 1996 article published in the Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, Boyer sought nothing less than to redefine the role of higher education. He advocated a move away from scholarship as the “application of academic expertise” to a scholarship that creates partnerships between higher education and communities. He further argued that engaged scholarship integrates the often-conflicting faculty roles of teaching, research and service, seeing them instead as different aspects of a common purpose. Since Boyer, engaged scholarship has come to mean collaboration between knowledge professionals on campuses and the lay public for mutual benefit.
