Digging Deeper: Engaged Scholarship

Engaged scholarship encompasses a full range of out-of-classroom experiences— from study abroad to service learning to community-based research. And it brings the vast knowledge of colleges and universities to help solve the world’s problems. What is engaged scholarship in practice? How is this work funded and sustained? And what does it mean for students, faculty, and the community at large?

Join Penn State President Eric Barron and guests Jonathan Alger, president of James Madison University, and Timothy Sands, president of Virginia Tech, as they discuss how this so-called Engaged Scholarship is evolving.
