Engaged Scholarship Faculty Committee
Welcome to the homepage for the Engaged Scholarship Faculty Committee (ESFC) at the
University of Memphis.
The ESFC formed in the fall of 2002 as an ad hoc faculty group representing most University
of Memphis colleges informally addressing common interests around student internships
and service learning. The faculty group quickly expanded its discussion to encompass
broader questions regarding shared interests in strengthening the University of Memphis’s
connection to the Mid-South community and soon came to recognize that such a vision
fit aptly within a movement in higher education increasingly referred to as “engaged
scholarship.” Thus, the “Ad Hoc Task Force on Engaged Scholarship” was founded.

The committee now welcomes new members to regular monthly breakfasts to discuss opportunities
for partnerships, research, publications, and more.
