Leading Community Engagement into the Future

To lead community engagement into the future, institutions must participate in research and activities that anchor community-engaged practices. At UNCG, we have been creating a culture of engaged work through defining community engagement, recognizing faculty talents, participating in strategic planning, tracking and measuring community engagement activity, attending to our institutional identity and image, and pushing toward the future for engaged scholarship. ICEE has been integral to this advancement both in practice and in scholarly contributions. Here we share our learning through our publications.
