The Community Engaged Scholarship @ Pitt Guide is a compiled list of educational resources supporting faculty and staff engaged in the co-creation of knowledge and scholarship with community-based actors. Resources listed here should be considered entry points for further exploration.
On the guide you'll find:
“Engaged Scholarship seeks to discover new knowledge through activities that collaboratively generate, exchange, or apply academic and community knowledge and practices through reciprocal partnerships among members of the University and members of the broader public. This often includes methods or approaches such as community-based participatory research (CBPR), engaged action research, and research-practice partnerships (RPPs), etc., and results in the public dissemination of new knowledge through academic publications, policy recommendations, technical reports, co-created exhibitions and creative pieces, and joint projects that benefit the community and the university.”
