Nomination Guidelines:

Community engaged-scholarship is the collaboration between academics and individuals or organizations outside the academy, in the context of partnership and reciprocity. It can involve generating, validating, synthesizing, or applying knowledge at the local, regional, national or global level. Community is broadly defined to include non-profit organizations, social enterprises, governmental agencies, and institutions.

Recipients will be selected on the basis of meaningful involvement by all partners as well as the impact of engagement activities on teaching, research and society at large.
