What is the Engaged Scholars Graduate Student Community of Practice?

It is a group tailored exclusively for graduate students immersed in engaged scholarship. This Community of Practice will provide a space for graduate students to share experiences, insights, and resources and to cultivate a supportive, cross-discipline network. In this collaborative environment, we aim to foster a sense of mutual learning and shared growth


While driven by the specific needs of the group members, this Community of Practice aims to:

  • Forge Connection and Thinking Together: Developing a space for individual scholars to learn and co-create together on common interests, problems, or ideas related to engaged scholarship.
  • Interdisciplinary Exchange: Facilitate cross-disciplinary dialogue, drawing on a diverse array of perspectives and methodologies.
  • Ethical Considerations: Foster discussions around the ethical dimensions of engaged scholarship.
  • Knowledge Dissemination: Establish or identify platforms for members to share their engaged scholarship projects, findings, and best practices.
  • Peer Mentorship: Cultivate a supportive environment where experienced engaged scholars guide newer members in navigating the unique challenges and opportunities of this form of scholarship.
