Higher education is the bedrock of a just, equitable, and sustainable future. Understanding that higher education institutions are responsible for preparing students to be engaged citizens, we together strive for the highest possible level of inclusivity. College access is central to this inclusivity, making possible a strong, healthy, active democratic society. One of a wide range of Knowledge Hubs from Campus Compact, Increasing College Access offers models, best practices, and resources for increasing college access.
Campus Compact developed the Engaged Scholarship Toolkit to help faculty and administrators advance community-engaged scholarship on campus. The toolkit is designed to: Add clarity to the meaning and conceptualization of community-engaged scholarship in a research university context. Provide a rationale for why to do it and resources on how to do it well. Offer tools and assistance for faculty at research universities to document engaged scholarship for reward and promotion. Provide tools and assistance for assessing engaged scholarship. Find the Engaged Scholarship Toolkit on the national Campus Compact website.
