The Institute advances community-engaged scholarship and the scholarship of engagement to ensure that practice and theory are relevant to and reflective of issues and events that continue to shape communities and society. We welcome collaborators!

Equitable, authentic, and flourishing relationships require intentionality, and community-higher education partnerships are no exception. ICEE has produced scholarship exploring several aspects of community-higher education partnerships including explicating reciprocity, partnership identity and institutional partnerships, conflict, communication, and restorative practices. The publications below focus on these research areas.

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.
