Engaged Scholarship Faculty Committee

Faculty and Staff

Engaged Scholarship is built upon reciprocal relationships between Universities and communities.  Similarly, Engaged Scholarship at the University of Memphis reflects the cumulative efforts of numerous people.

Within the University, faculty and staff enrich the learning experience of Memphis students through participatory action research, service-learning, and internships.  Members of the U of M community also travel all over the country, lecturing and presenting at conferences in an effort to expand engaged scholarship throughout the broader academic field. 

Engaged Scholarship requires that educators and students venture beyond the halls of academia to connect with residents and community stakeholders, all of whom play an integral role in the Engaged Scholarship process.

The following list reflects many of the engaged faculty at the University of Memphis. Please contact us if you would like to add a faculty member to the listing.
