  • Research University Engaged Scholarship Toolkit
    • This Toolkit, developed by TRUCEN, has four purposes: (1) To add clarity to the meaning and conceptualization of community-engaged scholarship in a research university context; (2) To provide a rationale for why to do it and resources on how to do it well; (3) To provide tools and assistance for faculty at research universities to document engaged scholarship for reward and promotion (i.e., how to get credit for it); and (4) To provide tools and assistance for enabling the assessment of engaged scholarship (i.e., for faculty reward and promotion).

  • UNCG Definition of Community Engagement in Promotion & Tenure Guidelines, Portfolios, and Reviews

    • Although each discipline, department, School and College will articulate the meaning and significance of community engagement and community-engaged scholarship based on its individual paradigms, policies, and practices, these efforts can be supported by a literature base of core principles and definitions. This document provides suggested language that integrates UNCG discussions and policy with scholarly literature and national conversations to address how community engagement may be achieved through the scholarly activities of research, creative activity, teaching, and service – and, how it may be defined within unit- and department-level promotion and tenure evaluation guidelines, non-tenure track faculty guidelines, faculty annual reports, unit mission statements, and other documents and policies. In particular the linked document addresses the questions: “what is community engagement?” and “How are high quality community-engaged research, creative activity, teaching, and service are distinct from community service or outreach)?
